DESCRIPTION:

“Flook are back with a bang, and better than ever – a very welcome return from one of folk’s finest bands” – Irish Music Magazine

Taking inspiration from their roots in the Irish and English traditions, Flook have an enviable trademark sound, weaving and spinning traditionally rooted tunes over precise acoustic grooves, with a rare blend of fiery technical brilliance, delicate ensemble interaction and a bold, adventurous musical imagination. The impact of this band stems from the wholly intuitive, exchange between the various flutes, frets and skins.

Their most recent album ‘Ancora’, released in 2019 and nominated for BBC Folk Album of the year, clearly demonstrates that, though their roots are firmly anchored in the tradition, they hold fast to their reputation as major musical innovators.

Brian Finnegan – whistles and flutes
Sarah Allen – flutes and accordion
Ed Boyd – guitar
John Joe Kelly – bodhrán

Flook were shortlisted for Best Folk Group in Ireland’s RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards 2019.

“Virtuoso playing abounds … the most creative bodhran player on the planet … superb technique plus a genuine feel and some stonking tunes is a powerful recipe” – MOJO

“Nothing short of transcendent… No other band sound like Flook and the new material has pushed them to new, exhilarating heights.”Songlines – Live review – June 2019

“Iconic, ground-breaking, progressive and all-round brilliant” – Lynette Fay, BBC Radio Ulster
