Wil Maring & Robert Bowlin

Award-winning singer/songwriter Wil Maring and virtuose guitarist /fiddler Robert Bowlin combine their talents, smoothly blending elements from all roots music genres to create an original acoustic music all their own -- oldtime and bluegrass, jazz and blues, celtic and country, it¹s all there.

Wil Maring's clear, airy vocal style and heartfelt lyrics, with her proficiency on upright bass and guitar, provide a perfect complement to Bowlin¹s instrumental fireworks.  Wil has toured Japan and Europe, was a Merlefest songwriting contest winner, a Kerrville NewFolk finalist, and they both have performed their original music on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry and NPR¹s Whaddya Know program.

Robert Bowlin, a two-time National Fingerpicking and Flatpicking Guitar contest winner, is a well-respected Nashville studio musician and has been a band member with legendary artists like Bill Monroe, Maura O¹Connell, Kathy Mattea, the Osborne Brothers, Tom T. Hall, Ray Price, and many more. As a duo, they have travelled coast to coast in the last decade, in Canada and the U.S, playing everywhere from the nation¹s largest acoustic festivals to intimate house concerts.
