    Henry James

    PARBOLD Douglas Music is delighted to present two of the hottest groups in the world of the folk festival scene, The Hut People and North Sea Gas will present three events throughout the day in the Auditorium in the Village Hall on Saturday, February 23 at 11am, 1.30 pm, and 7.45pm.

    Gary Hammond and Sam Pirt perform as The Hut People and they are known as one of the most entertaining and best loved acts on the UK folk scene today.

    They mix global rhythms with folk tunes, and they are described as a quirky celebration of our rich musical heritage.

    North Sea Gas, Dave Gilfillan, Grant Simpson, Ronnie ‘Mac’ MacDonald, is one of Scotland’s most popular folk bands. They have sold out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and around the world.

    The Hut People will present a Pied Piper ‘hands-on’ music workshop at 11am for children and accompanying adults and a Family Fun Concert at 1.30pm in the afternoon.

    The morning event provides an opportunity to experience exotic percussion instruments in a foot-stamping session.

    Entry to the morning event provides free entry to the afternoon concert.

    Organisers have said that the afternoon will be a family concert, “like nothing you have seen before”. Expect feel-good dancing tunes, audience participation and humour aplenty.

    The evening concert at 7.30 pm will open with The Hut People and then North Sea Gas will headline the evening.
