Wil Maring & Robert Bowlin

I'm going to build my excitement up for the upcoming Norah Rendell & Brian Miller March 8th House concert, by going back and reviewing the artists that have graced my fledgling house concert series called Bluff View Concerts.

First up was Wil Maring & Robert Bowlin. I found Wil thru MySpace and marveled at how similar she sounded to Nanci Griffith. She won a Merle Fest contest for Bottomlands, but beyond that I didn't know much about her or her significant other, Robert Bowlin. The house got 27 people to marvel at Robert's craftsmanship, and Wil's folksy warmth. Robert actually toured with Bill Monroe and has an instrument repair shop to keep him busy too.

Here a taste of what they were like.....
