6 December: THE HUT PEOPLE: World music? folk music? Excellent music
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.

13 December: Christmas Double Bill: MIKE Danver SCOTT / MORRIGAN
Mike Scott is a singer and songwriter from and very much in, the West Country. TwickFolk encountered Mike at the Village Pump Folk Festival, however when approached about appearing at The Patch, Mike’s first words were “I don’t tend to travel East of Cheltenham”. Which shows great wisdom. Nevertheless, perseverance (and a promise that there are no longer dragons within the M25) has paid off and Mike will be joining us for the final TwickFolk gig of the year. As he says about himself…
I am well into my seventh decade, and for the last three of those seven, I have been writing and singing my own songs. I can be most often found on the folk club scene in the West of England, with occasional forays into Art Centres and small concert venues.
I still consider myself to be learning my trade, the best I can hope for is that my songs either amuse or disturb, you will not find many answers in them, but I hope they might pose a few pertinent questions, and I hope you like one or two.
