Marla Fibish and Bruce Victor are Noctambule and they play original and traditional music  rendered with lush beauty, sensitivity and humor on an unusual array of strings  -- various guitars in varied tunings, mandola, mandolin, bouzouki, cittern, tenor guitar -- and their blended voices.They take the name Noctambule, French for 'night-owl,’ from a Robert Service poem about a nocturnal ramble through the back alleys of Paris.  Much of their music is poetry set to music and some songs are traditional reels and waltzes.  The first album, Travel In Shadows won critical acclaim and  they have recently released a second album,  The Waking, once again, setting poetry to music and we look forward to talking with both of them this Friday.

Lori Jean has the life experience to sing songs of life and the voice to do it.  Living with head damage from abuse as a  toddler and then later as an adult, she never lost her desire to sing.  In fact, her first words were “mommy, please play a  record”.  She skipped high school to write lyrics, formed a child sibling band, and followed her star – often led by inspiration from Stevie Nicks, The Pretenders and Cindi Lauper.  Her first album, Love of a Child, was recorded with French pop singer Ned Euphorya . Her next single, “Super Lady” is due for release in 2016, but we have it here.  All of her music is dedicated to stopping the kind of domestic violence she suffered, especially to teens. She joins us tghis Friday wsith her story and her songs.
