Top folk band to play Thornton Little Theatre

Published: Thursday, 12 January 2017

The Hut People

Ahead of their new album release, The Hut People are embarking on a UK wide tour including a date at Thornton Little Theatre.

On Saturday 4 March, this top British instrumental duo will be taking audiences on a musical journey around the world. Over the last three years they have proved to be one of the most unique, entertaining 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, their tour is a quirky celebration of their 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.

Accordionist Sam Pirt and percussionist Gary Hammond both have extensive backgrounds in music - having performed alongside legendary acts such as The Beautiful South, Nina Simone, The Dubliners and Sharon Shannon, and their playing is still very much in high demand.

Tickets are out now and are just £10. To book, call the Wyre Theatres box office on 01253 887693 or click here to book online.
