Taking the audience on a musical journey around the World, English instrumental duo The Hut People have over the last 3 years proved to be one of the most unique, entertaining and best-loved acts on the UK folk scene today.

Mixing global rhythms with folk tunes from Quebec to Spain, Scandinavia to Sussex and everywhere in between, this is a quirky celebration of our rich musical heritage – and it works so well!

This is a show like nothing you’ve ever seen before – expect feel-good dancing tunes, audience participation, step dancing, Quebecois foot-percussion (whilst playing the accordion!) and humour aplenty.

Accordionist Sam Pirt & Percussionist Gary Hammond both have extensive backgrounds in music – having been part of and performed alongside legendary acts such as The Beautiful South, Nina Simone, The Dubliners & Sharon Shannon, their playing is still very much in high demand.

This is high-octane feel-good music from a very likeable duo who have the ability to get the whole audience involved and loving it – before the end of the first tune!

‘a bewildering array of percussion and accordion-fired compositions….truly infectious!’R2

‘This is a brilliantly unique sound – a duo of piano accordion and percussion defiantly unbounded by British traditions as they stride into world music.’ The Scotsman
