Flook

Venue:J2
Price:£20 adv

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. 

Twenty six years after their first gig together, Flook continue to inspire and enchant audiences of all ages. With a new album ‘Ancora’ released in 2019, it’s plain to see that, with their roots firmly anchored in the tradition, Flook are holding 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

“Tour de force return after decade and a half – a luminous reunion ****” The Irish Times 

“Flook’s role and influence in the exploding excellence of instrumental folk music of various persuasions on these islands shouldn’t be underestimated… as vital as ever … Class is indeed permanent” fRoots 

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

Shortlisted for Best Folk Group in Ireland’s RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards 2019

Ancora nominated as Best Album in BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
