Young Anglo-Irish four-piece featuring dual flutes.

Tremendously appealing, deeply traditional, purely sensual folk flute. Flook capture the "haunting, uplifting" nature of the flute without losing any of the energy or grace of the tunes, some of which are new, some from the British traditions, some from the European. Flutes, whistles, accordion, bouzouki, mandolin and astonishingly harmonic bodhran. A wonderfully relaxing album, yet full of great energy and power.

"an album of suble fire, wit and rhythmic intensity" (MOJO Folk Album of the Month December 1999)

"a mighty, mighty gathering of the clans ... Some of the best young musicians in the land ... Quite spectacular" (Folk Roots)
