  • Breabach

    Fleecey Folk: Breabach
    Sunday 10th Feb, 8pm, £15

    “As polished as it was passionate, matching fiery intensity with exquisite finesse, this was a magnificent set.” The Scotsman *****
     
    Breabach continue to build their reputation of being at the forefront of the UK’s world and roots music scene with performances across the world throughout 2018. Alongside tours in Australia, Canada and Europe, the band also released their 6th studio album ‘Frenzy of the Meeting’ in October.
    The band who won BBC Scotland Album of the Year 2016 for their last album ‘Astar’ also clinched Band of the Year at the same awards. Their unique musicianship, combining twin bagpipes, fiddle, bass and guitar with Gaelic vocals and step dance has won them fans across the globe and saw them once again nominated as finalists in both the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and the Songlines Music Awards.
    Having traversed the world, Breabach have appeared at festivals and venues ranging from Sydney Opera House to Central Park, New York and will perform here (again!) as part of a UK tour where audiences can hear firm favourites alongside material from the new album.

  • Fleecey Folk: Flook

    Sunday 28th Apr, 08:00pm

    Tickets £16 

    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.
     
    Though their first release, Flook! Live! (1997), was already heralded as “the ultimate modern flute album” by The Irish Times, Flook only properly burst onto the international music scene with the release of their debut studio album, “Flatfish”, in 1999. This album introduced master bodhran player John Joe Kelly to Flook’s line up of flutists Brian Finnegan and Sarah Allen and guitarist Ed Boyd. Flatfish was hailed as “stunning”, “remarkable” and “little short of miraculous”, 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. “Rubai”, released in 2002 and nominated for BBC Folk Album of the Year, was 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, and they went on to win the coveted award for Best Group at BBC Folk Awards 2006.
     
    There is 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.
     
    Flook announced that they were taking a prolonged pause from live performance at the end of 2008, but, due to overwhelming popular demand, they are now back together and playing some carefully selected concerts around Europe and further afield. Catch these rare shows while you can!
