Folque is a Norwegian folk rock band founded in 1973 by Morten Bing, Jørn Jensen, Eilif Amundsen, Lisa Helljesen, Espen Løvstad, Trond Øverland, and Trond Villa. In 1972 a subset of the band was initially named «Brød & Vin» (Bread & wine), they changed the name to Folque in the spring of 1973 after adding members and traditional instruments to the ensemble.[1]

The band was dissolved in 1984, but reunited in 1994 and in 2004 for playing live. Folque is re-established in 2014 with Lisa Helljesen as lead singer.

Their musical style is linked to Malicorne in France and to Steeleye Span in the UK.[2][3]

Most of the discography is difficult to find, as only the first three albums were re-released on CD.
