The Hut People

The Hut People, who, as the festival-goers at the first Costa del Folk in Spain  discovered, 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 mind-boggling array of exotic percussion – with 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, a show from the Hut People is filled to the brim with spontaneity, often hilarious patter and a 110% commitment to their getting-the-crowd-involved ethos.
