Sale price160,00 kr



The folk rock group Folque was formed in Oslo in 1972. The group was originally called Brød og vin, but changed its name to Folque in 1973. The first concert under the name Folque was on 30 April 1973 in Chateau Neuf. Folque was "Norway's leading folk-rock group" and dealt with Norwegian folk music, and mixed this with rhythms and instruments of more recent date, in the same way as Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span did in England. Folque released eight studio albums and one live album. The last phase in Folque's history began when Øyvind Rauset quit in 1981. The group was left without a fiddler. Therefore, it was the guitar and mandolin that took over the solos, and the group proved to do well without the fiddle. Sort messe , was recorded the following year. The album was dominated by Lars Helljesen as composer and arranger and Morten Bing as lyricist and composer. Arvid Esperø was back as producer and the result was one of Folque's better records.
