Profile: Kinley Dowling

by Jane Ledwell

Interviewing Kinley Dowling, you meet many musical personae in one. “’Kinley Dowling’ is more folk, and she is who plays with Hey Rosetta! or with Dennis Ellsworth,” she says. Kinley Dowling is the in-demand strings player. Then she cocks her head and frames her face with a sparkly grin. “’KINLEY’ is someone different.”
