The Hut People

English instrumental duo The Hut People have firmly established themselves as one of THE most unique and best-loved acts on the UK folk scene.

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.

In 2017, The Hut People release their 4th studio album on the Fellside label entitled 'Routes'.

Tunes forging pathways and routes underground; across the oceans and traversing motorways. Infectious melodies and foot-tapping rhythms packed into containers laden with grooves from South Africa, Quebec and across the globe; North, South, East and West. ‘Routes’ is their most expansive and thoughtful journey yet. Jump on board and enjoy the ride.
