As you’re undoubtedly aware, the musical phenomenon that was FLOOK officially decided to call it a day in late 2008. After much arm twisting however, they’ve agreed to play a one off
concert, as part of the biggest event ever to hit the island of Ireland – the Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge (13-16 August 2009).

As the Gateway to the Tall Ships, Custom House Square in Belfast will play host to a veritable feast of fantastic folk, trad, roots and world music over the four day period, culminating in what is turning out to be possibly the most exciting evening of traditional music this year.

The ‘Titanic World Ceilidh’ runs from 8pm-12midnight on Sunday 16th August and features Brian Finnegan, Sarah Allen, Ed Boyd and John Joe Kelly (aka FLOOK!) PLUS very special guests.

Eager not to miss the chance to film this unique event, BBC Blas Ceoil will be hosting the evening and also presenting a variety of ‘special guests’. Contractually we can’t give you the details of who all those people are just yet – but if folk, roots and traditional music are
your cup of tea, we guarantee you won’t find a more exciting line up this year!

Tickets are priced at a recession busting £12 each and are available here.
