Exposition: 'Tunes at Twilight' Guests, Wil Maring & Robert Bowlin - June 2

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. Wil has toured Japan and Europe, was a Merlefest songwriting contest winner, a Kerrville NewFolk finalist, and together they have performed their original music on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. 

Robert Bowlin, a two-time National Fingerpicking and Flatpicking Guitar contest winner, is a well-respected Nashville studio musician on several instruments, and has been a band member with legendary artists like Bill Monroe, Tom T. Hall, Faron Young, Ray Price, Ricky Van Shelton, Kathy Mattea, Maura O'Connell, the Osborne Brothers, 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 nation's largest acoustic festivals to intimate house concerts.
