Weaving traditional Irish music with their own compositions, Flook's unique combination of flutes underpinned by fluid guitar and hugely impressive bodhran playing has made them one of the most popular bands on the live music circuit.

"Sheer musical magic...... Stunning technique, impossibly agile rhythm work and virtuoso flights of jazzy improvisation add up to one of the most enthralling sounds around." The Scotsman, Jan 2000

Their CD, Flatfish, mixed in the Big Room at Peter Gabriels's Real World Studios at Box, near Bath, and released in October 1999, has been receiving accolades from critics everywhere:

Songlines, Spring 2000
"It is, quite simply, one of the most stunning contemporary Celtic albums youÍll hear this or any other year."

MOJO December 1999
Folk Album of the Month
"an album of subtle fire, wit and rhythmic intensity."

The Scotsman, 2.10.99
"a cornucopia of sublime musicianship."
Rating: * * * * *

Folk Roots, November 1999
"A mighty, mighty gathering of the clans...some of the best young musicians in the land... quite spectacular."

Dirty Linen, April/May 2000
"Nothing short of brilliant..........irresistible."

Hot Press, 30.3.2000
"A subtlety that sets them yards apart ...... This is far more than just another Celtic album by just another band."

"You need a cold shower to fully wake up to the phenomenal potential of this music" Irish Music Magazine, Feb 2000
