Campfire Club London: The Hut People, Kadialy Kouyate
This August, we are gathering in beautiful green spaces in London, Bristol and Sheffield to hear extraordinary live music.
In the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, we will come together around the fire to enjoy music, food, drink, and the company of others.
There will be no on-site catering available; you are welcome to bring your own food. Please do not bring your own alcohol, as we will be running a bar.
The Hut People
Taking the audience on a musical journey around the World, English instrumental duo The Hut People (Sam Pirt and Gary Hammond) have firmly established themselves as one of THE best loved, 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 festival season is nearly upon us, and with The Hut People gracing many of this years bashes, their infectious ‘World Folk’ will surely be winning them many new fans” – Songlines
