Noctambule is Peghead Nation Irish Mandolin instructor Marla Fibish and her husband, guitarist Bruce Victor, and they have just released their fourth album, Every Migrant is My FellowThe title of the album is taken from a line in a volume of poetry called Songs from Vagabondia, written by Canadian Bliss Carman and American Richard Hoovey and released in three installments between 1894 and 1900.

In conversation with Irish Music Magazine, Marla and Bruce explained the themes running through this project: “There are two interwoven themes for the recording,” said Marla. “One is the Vagabondia poetry itself, and the other is the idea of separation – people separated or separating in various ways from something, someone or somewhere they love. Vagabonds, wanderers, migrants, emigrants, exiles, refugees…” Bruce further explained, “Vagabondia is also a metaphor for the human condition. We’re all traveling through literal and metaphorical lands without a reliable map; at some point, we are all Gulliver among the Brobdingnabs.”

In this video, Marla and Bruce play “Murmuration,” an original tune written by Marla, in the Peghead Nation studio.
