WELCOME TO AN EVENING OF LIVELY MUSIC IN THE LIGHTHOUSE
Marla Fibish is a long-time feature of the Bay Area Irish music scene, bringing a musicality and excitement to the tradition that is seldom heard on the mandolin. She is also known for her compositions, musical settings of poetry and instrumental pieces that have been featured in her work. In addition to the mandolin, Marla adds mandola, tenor guitar, bouzouki, accordion and her voice to the Noctambule sound. She has often taught at Lark Camp. Bruce Victor is an eclectic and accomplished guitarist and composer, who plays a bunch of different guitars in a bunch of different tunings. Seemingly resisting any single musical genre, he has been labeled a 'poly-stylist,' (by one of the editors of Acoustic Guitar magazine), and has played with The Sirens of San Francisco, The Triplicates, and as a solo performer. He was the founder of the Acoustic Vortex, a non-profit musical organization that produced house concerts, mentored youth performers, and performed benefit concerts for other non-profit organizations.
'The irregular phrases, unpredictable meters and strangely beautiful harmonies...overlapping voices, guitars, and mandolins conjure a nocturnal world in which the words of some of our finest poets take shape and snap together magically like recently discovered pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Travel in the Shadows is folk music at its best--hand made, without a template.' - Alex DeGrassi
'So listen again, and again, and in time, in short order, in fact, Travel In the Shadows will cast a certain spell you’ll be anxious to revisit...' - Deep Roots Magazine
'The playing is simply beautiful, and the interplay between Bruce Victor's moving, deft yet muscular guitar playing and Marla Fibish's always magic mandolin reminds me of watching two strong dancers moving together, creating so much more than the sum of the parts.' - Kevin Carr, Folkworks
