    The Flow has put together a number of articles related to Irish flute playing. This has always been an important part of this web site and the recent redesign has brought them all together in one place.

If you are interested in playing traditional music on the flute in an authentic style and producing a sound like that of the masters, then you might like to look at the articles on regional and other styles. The introduction provides a good overview, while those on Sligo, East Galway and Piping styles provide a more detailed account of the main styles to be found in Ireland.

Related articles are on the phenomenon of left-handed flute playing in Irish traditional music and on the flute traditions of Galicia (by guest contributor Cástor Castro) and Scotland.
