The Hut People (Sam Pirt and Gary Hammond) have firmly established themselves as one of the most unique, entertaining and best-loved acts on the UK folk scene today. Expect feel-good dancing tunes, audience participation, step dancing, Quebecois foot-percussion (whilst playing the accordion!) and humour aplenty.
Their 4th studio album on the Fellside label entitled ‘Routes‘ is filled with tunes forging pathways and routes underground; across the oceans and traversing motorways. Infectious melodies and foot-tapping rhythms packed into containers laden with grooves from South Africa, Quebec and across the globe; North, South, East and West. ‘Routes’ is their most expansive and thoughtful journey yet. Jump on board and enjoy the ride.
“a bewildering array of percussion and accordion-fired compositions….truly infectious!” R2
“The only band to have been asked back 10 times consecutively – because they’re so good!” Swaledale Festival
