Flook is an Anglo-Irish band playing traditional-style instrumental music, although much is penned by the band themselves. Their music is typified by extremely fast, sometimes percussive, flute and whistle atop complex guitar and bodhrán rhythms. The band was formed in 1995 with three flute-playing friends Sarah Allen, Brian Finnegan and Michael McGoldrick, (who left in 1997 to join Capercaillie). The band was briefly known as Three Nations Flutes. In December 2008, the band sent a message to fans via their website announcing their disbanding.
