"The Bluegrass Ambassadors"
IN THE 14 YEARS SINCE THE HENHOUSE PROWLERS' INCEPTION, THE BAND HAS FORGED ITS OWN PATH THROUGH MUSIC AND ACROSS THE GLOBE.
"This bluegrass band has the right formula: heavenly harmonies on top of furious fingerpicking, trucking down the highway at 200mph." - Time Out Chicago
On stage, the group's enthralling performances give audiences a sense of how much they love what they do; while on record, the band manages to explore their collective life experiences through songwriting and intricate instrumentation. While bluegrass is the undeniable foundation of the Prowlers music, the band manages to bend and squeeze the traditional form into a sound all their own.
With over 175 shows a year, the quartet has managed to tour more than 25 countries, often going to places traditional American music has never been.
Tours in Siberia or the Middle East are not uncommon since the Prowlers started working as cultural ambassadors with the US State Department in 2013. These global experiences have pushed the band in new directions musically, with songs from Africa and Asia on several albums, but they have also moved the group to start an educational outreach program for both school children and festival-goers alike.
