Faerie Folk is the first studio single from The Flask. Recorded in the Netherlands at In The Room Studios and released via Friendly Folk Records (Dec/2019) for worldwide digital distribution. Faerie Folk is an original number based on Gaelic mythology of a young boy who wanders into the Faerie world. The story follows the plight of the young boy and his mother who enters Faerie world to retrieve her son and bring him back home. A mix of frolick uptempo Celtic sounds combined with four part harmony accapela for a blend that is as magical as the story.

The Flask is een jonge en energieke folkband. De muzikanten vertellen met hun muziek graag verhalen. Van gevoelige ballades tot uptempo tunes, zowel covers als zelfgeschreven nummers. De basis ligt bij de Keltische folkmuziek met voorbeelden als Rapalje en The High Kings. Ook zijn er fantasy invloeden te horen van Faun en ruige piratenverhalen geïnspireerd op Ye Banished Privateers. Met z’n vieren zetten ze met (meerstemmige) zang, gitaar, tin en low whistles, viool, bodhràn en cajon een feest neer waar gedanst, gezongen en gelachen wordt en men zich even in een hele andere wereld waant.
