The Hut People
As the festival-goers at the first Costa del Folk in Spain discovered, The Hut People perform a unique, high-octane blend of folk music from around the world, courtesy of Sam Pirt and his foot-stomping accordion and Gary Hammond with his mindboggling array of exotic percussion.
There’ll be some Quebecois foot percussion & dancing thrown in for good measure too!
Accordionist Sam also performs with previous BBC Folk Award winners, 422. Percussionist Gary has, for the past 12 years, recorded and toured with The Beautiful South.
Great music aside, one of their shows is filled to the brim with spontaneity. Often they feature hilarious patter and a 100% commitment to their getting-the-crowd-involved ethos.
