May 8 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Barrel Room Concert - Noctambule (Marla Fibish and Bruce Victor) @ Stonefield Cellars Winery | Stokesdale | North Carolina | United States

We are pleased to bring back the wonderful duo of MARLA FIBISH and BRUCE VICTOR, together known as NOCTAMBULE. They play original and traditional music in a variety of forms – original musical settings of a broad array of poetry, original instrumental pieces, and traditional Irish tunes and songs. This unique collaboration brings out qualities in both of these seasoned musicians that you may not have heard from them before. Their music is 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.    This will be a wonderful evening to share with friends – over a bottle or two of wine of course!!!  Reserved table seating available for advance purchase ticket holders.          For info on Noctambule, visit http://www.noctambulemusic.com

(We will carpool over or you can drive separately and follow us).SpringHike
