The Hut People

Over the last three years The Hut People have proved to be one of the most unique, entertaining and best-loved acts on the UK folk scene, and on Saturday, March 4, the British instrumental duo will be taking Thornton on a musical journey around the world.

Mixing global rhythms with folk tunes from Quebec to Spain, Scandinavia to Sussex and everywhere in between, their tour is a quirky celebration of their rich musical heritage.

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

A spokesman said: “Expect feel-good dancing tunes, audience participation, step dancing, Quebecois foot-percussion (whilst playing the accordion!) and humour aplenty.

“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!”
