MUSICAL duo the Hut People will be become Village Hall People when they play in Tynedale.

The Hut People, or Sam Pirt and Gary Hammond as they are known individually, will perform at Allendale Village Hall on Sunday (February 23) at 7.30pm.

The instrumental duo have gained a reputation as being one of the most unique acts on the UK folk scene, and are bringing that entertaining brand of music to the Tyne Valley.

They mix global rhythms with folk tunes from Quebec to Spain, Scandinavia to Sussex, and everywhere in between, and their show is billed as a quirky celebration of the world’s rich musical heritage.

The duo released their fourth studio album, Routes, in 2017, on the Fellside label, and will play a selection of songs from their repertoire.

The band said: “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.”

The concert is suitable for children to enjoy, not only adults.

Tickets are available from Allendale Post Office, Allendale Co-op and on the door.
