Flook

15th November 2023

Price: £23.25


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. There is certainly no shortage of virtuosity amongst the members of Flook, but the unique impact of this band stems from the wholly intuitive, almost symbiotic, exchange between the various flutes, frets and skins.

More than twenty seven years after their first gig together, Flook continue to inspire and enchant audiences of all ages. Their most recent album ‘Ancora’, released in 2019 to critical acclaim and nominated for BBC Folk Album of the year, clearly demonstrates that, with their roots firmly anchored in the tradition, Flook still hold fast to their reputation as major musical innovators.

Brian Finnegan – whistles and flutes
Sarah Allen – flutes and accordion

Flook were shortlisted for Best Folk Group in Ireland’s RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards 2019. ‘Ancora’ was nominated as Best Album in BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
