The flutes of Brian Finnegan and Sarah Allen, the guitar of Ed Boyd and the bodhran of John Joe Kelly weave and spin traditionally rooted tunes into the breathtaking sound of the groundbreaking band Flook. This group possesses a rare blend of fiery technical brilliance, delicate ensemble interaction and a bold, adventurous musical imagination.Flook burst onto the international music scene with the release of their debut studio album Flatfish. The album was critically acclaimed, but it was Flook's live performances that really captured the hearts of those who watched and listened; the rapport between these four musicians, the sheer enjoyment they developed in playing together, was commented on by audiences and critics alike.Their second album Rubai was nominated for BBC Folk Album of the Year and universally applauded by both journalists and fellow musicians, and cemented Flook's reputation as one of the most exciting and innovative bands to emerge from the English/Irish folk scene. Following the release of Haven, Flook went on to win the coveted award for 'Best Group' at BBC Folk Awards 2006.Flook announced that they were taking a prolonged pause from live performance at the end of 2008, but due to overwhelming popular demand, they're back with a new album due for release in early 2019. £16/£19
