Markley & Balmer
Markley & Balmer, an indefinable duo, who blend jazz, folk, pop, bop and the occasional polka into a stimulating mix for your listening pleasure.   Lisa Markley (vocals, guitar, banjo) and Bruce Balmer (vocals, guitar), both talented songwriters, come together to present us with a most entertaining package.   As an innocent bystander once noted: "Lisa has a dangerous contralto that vanquishes Bruce's studious attitude on an antique guitar."

What others have said:
