About Mike Dowling: Mike draws inspiration from deep in the musical bag of American roots guitar styles. Influenced by traditional Piedmont style fingerpickers like Mississippi John Hurt and swing jazz legends like the great George Barnes, Mike's developed a style, uniquely his own, that he translates fluently to arch top, flat top, and resonator guitars alike. From bottleneck blues on a well-worn National to elegant swing interpretations reminiscent of the great old jazz artists, Mike Dowling can do it all. Armed with an engaging voice, self-deprecating wit, and an arsenal of elegant interpretations of old blues, swing, ragtime, and original tunes, he is also a sought-after clinician and seasoned instructor.
