Taking the audience on a musical journey around the World, English instrumental duo The Hut People (Sam Pirt and Gary Hammond) have over the last 4 years proved to be one of THE most unique, entertaining and best-loved acts on the UK folk scene today.
Mixing global rhythms with folk tunes from Quebec to Spain, Scandinavia to Sussex and everywhere in between, this is a quirky celebration of our rich musical heritage and it works so well!
This is a show like nothing you've ever seen before expect feel-good dancing tunes, audience participation, step dancing, Quebecois foot-percussion (whilst playing the accordion!) and humour aplenty.
Those lucky enough to have been at their previous ACE Space gig will always fondly remember the musical rendition of squeaky pigs.  Sam's strong folk background and Gary's jazz and World music (not forgetting the stint with Beautiful South) is not an obvious combination but it works so brilliantly.
Gary and Sam will be running a World Rhythms Workshop from 3pm to 4pm open to all ages and musical ability.
