Hut People at the Bothy

The Hut  PeopleThe Hut People are next up at The Bothy Folk Club in Southport.

Accordionist Sam Pirt & Percussionist Gary Hammond are rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the hottest and most entertaining Folk/World acts touring today.

Both have extensive backgrounds in music, folk and beyond - having been part of and performed alongside legendary acts such as The Beautiful South, Nina Simone, The Dubliners & Sharon Shannon.

The duo released their 2nd full album Picnic on Fellside in last April – supported with a nationwide tour, which drew critical acclaim.

"a bewildering array of percussion and accordion-fired compositions….truly infectious!" R2

"Remarkable."  The Living Tradition

"…an enormous ebullience, an absolutely hyper off-the-scale level of sweaty hi-energy, and total (ok, 200%) commitment…. what an impression they  made…a very high ‘wow’ factor…”      Netrhythms
