This was an amazing booking for the club since you rarely get to experience the magic of this outstanding group of musicians unless you are in a large concert hall or at a festival main stage.
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 four years after their first gig together, Flook continue to inspire and enchant audiences of all ages. With their 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.
