"In the US, their reputation borders on the Messianic ..."

" Head and shoulders above the rest... Magnificent"  The Irish Times

"Four brilliant musicians. Four times as much brilliant music" Time Out

With the flutes and whistles of Brian Finnegan and Sarah Allen, the guitar of Ed Boyd and the bodhran of John Joe Kelly, this iconic band weaves and spins traditionally rooted tunes into an enthralling sound - with agile but tight rhythms and virtuoso improvisation. Flook possesses a rare blend of fiery technical brilliance, delicate ensemble interaction and a bold, adventurous musical imagination.

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.
