THE HENHOUSE PROWLERS ARE BLUEGRASS AMBASSADORS.
Founded 17 years ago with the simple desire to play original and powerful
bluegrass, this quartet now finds themselves at the intersection of performance,
diplomacy and education.
On stage, the group’s enthralling performances give audiences a sense of how
much they love what they do. On record – including their 2021 release and ninth
full length album, The Departure – the band explores their collective life experiences
through songwriting and intricate instrumentation. While bluegrass is the
undeniable foundation of the Prowlers music, the band bends and squeezes the
traditional form into a sound all their own.
Working with the U.S. State Department and under their own nonprofit,
Bluegrass Ambassadors, the Prowlers have toured over 25 countries across the
globe. The group’s experiences with people and musicians across Africa, Asia,
Europe, and The Middle East have shaped the band’s world view and broadened the
group’s direction towards bridging cultural gaps with music, educational programs
and workshops. Using traditional American music as a foundation, connecting folk
music and cultures the world over, the Prowlers incorporate international elements
into their already robust repertoire of unique traditional American music.
Whether performing live or presenting workshops, and wherever they are, the
Henhouse Prowlers find and spread the commonality we share as human beings
through the universal language of music.
You can feel it at every show.
