Friday Lunch: The Hut People

Part of Friday Lunch

This English folk duo take audiences on a musical journey around the world

Accordionist Sam Pirt and percussionist Gary Hammond mix global rhythms with folk tunes from Quebec to Spain, Scandinavia to Sussex.

Expect feel-good dancing tunes, audience participation, step dancing, Quebecois foot-percussion (while playing the accordion!) and humour aplenty.

’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)
