Henhouse Prowlers tour Europe in February and March with new release 'Separation Man'

13-02-2018

In the 14 years since the Henhouse Prowlers' inception, the band has forged its own path through bluegrass music and across the globe. On stage, the group's bombastic performances give audiences a sense 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 a new educational outreach program for both school children and festival-goers alike. Bluegrass Ambassadors is the Henhouse Prowlers new non-profit that uses traditional American music as a foundation to talk about folk music and culture's all over the world.

The Henhouse Prowlers have released two albums in 2017, including Live from Kyrgyzstan in March and the brand new studio album Separation Man in November. This year holds two European tours for the band and even more untold adventures as the Prowlers continue to bring their own blend of bluegrass and world music to hearts unknown.
