Folque - Folque (Norway 1974) (1993 Remaster) @320

Wow! Although I did ask Max to include a bunch of Norwegian bands, I had not dared mentioned this one, because they play what I call downright folk music. Only their desire to make truthful folk might make this prog in the adventurous side of it. Almost entirely acoustic, this album is a bit the Norwegian equivalent of Kebnekaise (Sweden) or Malicorne (France) and one feels like some foot stomping and square dancing when listening to this. I have not heard the other albums but would like to thank my library to have this one in stock - that alone is quite a feat. Good female vocals sung in Norwegian.

That sounds great. Traditional instruments.
I'm very curious, a great chance of listening to a, for me, totally new album on a sunday midmorning. Thx for giving this to us!

Thanks a lot.
In our blog we're planning also to publish some interesting articles about Veps people: customs, traditions, magic etc.
The first article is devoted to the wedding ceremony.
