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.
With a remarkably busy schedule this Moving on Music tour of the north will see the band perform music from their incredible new album ‘Ancora‘, which was released in early 2019 after a 14-year recording hiatus.
Twenty-four years after their first gig together, Flook continue to inspire and enchant, firmly cementing their reputation as one of the all time best.
