Take a musical journey around the world courtesy of an acclaimed English instrumental duo coming to the Boston area this weekend.

The Hut People play Mareham le Fen Village Hall, in Main Street, Mareham le Fen on Sunday evening.

Band members Sam Pirt and Gary Hammond mix global rhythms with folk tunes from Quebec to Spain, Scandinavia to Sussex, and everywhere in between, to provide – in their words – ‘a quirky celebration of our rich musical heritage’.

Accordionist Sam and percussionist Gary have extensive backgrounds in music, having been part of and performed alongside legendary acts such as The Beautiful South, Nina Simone, The Dubliners, and Sharon Shannon.

The duo has attracted much praise in the press, with R2 magazine hailing them as ‘truly infectious’ and writing of a ‘bewildering array of percussion and accordion-fired compositions’.

Those who attend Sunday’s event are told to expect feel-good dancing tunes, audience participation, step dancing, Quebecois foot-percussion (while playing the accordion) and humour aplenty.

The show will start at 7.30pm (doors 7pm).

Tickets are priced at £10 (free to children aged under 16) and are available from 07947 130336 or www.marehamlefenvillagehall.co.uk

Attendees are invited to bring their own drink and nibbles.
