Performer Notes
  • You know what to depend on with Flook -- a wonderful interplay between flutes and whistles, backed by some marvelous guitar work and bodhran playing so sublime you'd swear there were three percussionists. They don't vary the formula much on their third release, but they don't have to. Instead they keep refining their sound, bringing in a few guests to add texture, but really do what they do best: create enchanting, airy melodies that pulse with life. Unlike so many bands that have lead and backing instruments, each member of the quartet is integral to the sound, building it. One of the biggest surprises is John Joe Kelly's mandolin playing. Known for his bodhran work, he's also an all-Ireland mandolin champion, although never flashy, simply adding just enough. And that's perhaps the secret to Flook: they've discovered that the secret recipe involves no egos. As on "The Tortoise and the Hare" or "Asturian Way" everyone plays off everyone else to lift the music higher and exhilarate. The pudding is never over-egged -- the taste and timing are perfect. The basis of their sound might be Irish, but they've long since moved beyond that into Balkan and other cultures, but all the while making tunes (all contemporary) sound ineffably Flook-ish. Quite simply wonderful. ~ Chris Nickson
Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (p.90) - "Innovation and jubilation mix freely and easily in Flook's latest release. Instrumental virtuosity has been Flook's calling card..."
