Champions of the standing ovation, The Hut People are rapidly gaining more and more of reputation as one of the hottest & most entertaining world/folk acts touring today.
Taking the audience on a voyage across the globe with their material, they perform a high-octane unique blend of home-grown tunes mixed with British, Nordic and European folk music, perfectly formed & embellished with the driving accordion and a mind-boggling array of exotic percussion.
Accordionist Sam Pirt also performs with 422 (previous Radio 2 Folk awards winners) and is a very experienced musician who is well established within the folk circuit. Sam has in the past performed alongside Kathryn Tickell, The Dubliners, Sharon Shannon, Jez Lowe, Brian Finnegan, Brian McNeill and many others. He is also the founder of Ethno England.
Percussionist Gary Hammond has for the past 12 years recorded and toured with The Beautiful South. He has also worked with Nina Simone and has frequently been a part of many other groups and collaborations within the World, Jazz & Pop genres.
Great music aside, a show from The Hut People is filled to the brim with spontaneity, often hilarious patter and a 110% commitment to their getting-the-crowd-involved ethos. Don’t miss them.
Kitchen Garden Café is a tranquil oasis in the heart of Kings Heath’s busy shopping centre, combining a garden shop, café, deli and meeting room surrounding an old blue brick courtyard.
At the licensed Café you’ll find a variety of delicious and wholesome things to eat, all freshly made right here, including an A la Carte Menu on Thursday to Saturday evenings and Sunday lunch. The vast majority of our food is organic and, wherever possible, fairly traded and supplied by local producers. We have a separate children’s menu and play area.
There’s also a Deli where you can purchase organic and locally sourced food to take home, including local and organic cheeses, organic wines, beers & spirits, plus jams and preserves made in our own kitchen. And, because we know you want to make good food at home too, we stock a range of groceries and fresh organic fruit and vegetables.
You can hire our meeting room or even the whole café for your meetings, celebrations and events. We can supply hot and cold buffets to suit a range of budgets.
We also host a number of regular and one-off events, including the Retort (an eclectic mix of music, comedy, poetry and alternative cabaret and the Storytelling Café (bringing storytelling back to adult audiences).
