Wil Maring is a highly acclaimed songwriter, having won the prestigious songwriting contest at Merlefest, and has appeared on the Grand Ole Opry with her original music. Her well-crafted songs, solid rhythm and fingerstyle guitar work, and her clear, airy vocals give her music a unique, appealing sound that paints pictures of the rural southern Illinois landscapes where she grew up. Add the contributions of the accomplished musicians she tours with and you get beautiful original music that straddles the fence between bluegrass, folk, and acoustic country. It is heartfelt music, difficult to categorize but appealing to all age groups, from toddlers dancing in front of the stage to seniors requesting songs their parents used to sing.
