Event Details

Henhouse Prowlers live at The Belfry in SIsters, OR.  Ky Burt will be opening the night.

THE HENHOUSE PROWLERS ARE BLUEGRASS AMBASSADORS.

Founded over 14 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.


The Prowlers have now been to more than 25 countries across the globe. Working

with the U.S. State Department and under their own nonprofit, Bluegrass

Ambassadors, the band incorporates music from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and

more into their already robust repertoire of unique traditional American music.

When performing live, 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.


On stage, the group's electrifying 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 often performs in 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 on the

American Music Abroad cultural diplomacy tours. 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 school children and festival-goers alike.


The Prowlers nonprofit, Bluegrass Ambassadors, uses traditional

American music as an educational foundation to connect folk music and

cultures all over the world. Having been to 11 countries in Africa alongside

Russia, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Saudi Arabia and UAE, these powerful direct

experiences with distant peoples and musicians have shaped the band’s

worldview and shifted the group’s direction towards bridging cultural gaps

through music, educational programs and workshops.


The Henhouse Prowlers released two albums in 2017, including "Live from

Kyrgyzstan" in March and the phenomenal studio album "Separation Man" in

November. 2018-2019 sees more European tours for the band and even more

adventures as the Prowlers continue to bring their own blend of bluegrass and

world music to hearts unknown.
