According to the Theater, this year’s featured artists include:
Wil Maring & Robert Bowlin
Award-winning singer-songwriter Wil Maring and world-class guitarist and fiddler Robert Bowlin combine their talents, smoothly blending elements from all roots music genres to create an original acoustic music all their own:Old time and bluegrass, jazz and blues, Celtic and country…..it’s all there. Wil’s clear, airy vocal style and heartfelt lyrics with her proficiency on upright bass and guitar, provide a perfect complement to Bowlin’s instrumental fireworks.
Carter & Connelly-with friends
Curt Carter and Tom Connelly have been called “Illinois’ Preeminent Folk Warriors”.Performing together since 1988, their music has seen a wide range of venues from live radio, club, coffeehouse and festival performances to political and environmental awareness benefits. They are energetic and insightful songwriters tackling social and environmental concerns through their music. Humorous anecdotes that complement their songs make Curt and Tom’s performance a truly unforgettable experience. For this year’s Cabin Fever Concert, the duo will be joined by their friends Mila Maring, Kelley Sims, Geoff Maring and Mark Stoffel.
