Much-loved folk duo to perform at The Witham

On Friday 3 March at 8pm a unique mix of folk and traditional music from around the world is brought to The Witham,  Barnard Castle’s vibrant arts centre by The Hut People.

The English instrumental duo is firmly established as one of the most unique and entertaining acts on the UK folk scene today, mixing global rhythms with folk tunes from Quebec to Spain, Scandinavia to Sussex with their distinctive sound of piano accordion and foot-stomping percussion. Accordionist Sam Pirt & Percussionist Gary Hammond have impressive backgrounds in music having been part of and performed alongside legendary acts such as The Beautiful South, Nina Simone, The Dubliners & Sharon Shannon. A treat for a Barnard Castle venue, the duo have been a hit at local Swaledale Festival for eight years running with sell out shows across the board thanks to their humour and charm.

To book tickets and find out more information, visit The Witham between 10am and 4pm, Tuesday to Saturday, book online: www.thewitham.org.uk or call 01833 631107.
