Description

Taking the audience on a musical journey around the World, English instrumental duo The Hut People, Sam Pirt (422) and Gary Hammond (The Beautiful South) have firmly established themselves as 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!

The improbable combination of accordion and percussion raises eyebrows and yet R2 magazine thinks the "bewildering array of percussion and accordion-fired compositions is truly infectious!". On this new album you will discover such exotic percussion instruments as the Caxixi, the Santa Fe Wooden Snare, the Wah Wah Shaker and the Zabumba. You will also meet the Latex Pigs and Mr Knocky.

Mixing traditional tunes with more recently composed tunes and adding in their own compositions makes for a heady cocktail: 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.
