Taking their name from ‘folklore’, the traditional art of storytelling and telling the tale of life, love, loss and fate one note at a time, Lore is fronted by singer/songwriter Carolann Carlile. Born in Belfast, Carolann was raised in Limavady, while composer and songwriter Raymond O’Kane from rural Dungiven will be on piano. Also from Dungiven, founding member and original driving force behind the band, Luke McCloskey will play guitar, with the line-up completed by Ballymena’s Rebecca Hall on the violin and fiddle.
