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, BluegrassAmbassadors, 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, theHenhouse 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 groups 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 theAmerican 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 traditionalAmerican music as an educational foundation to connect folk music and cultures all over the world. Having been to 11 countries in Africa alongsideRussia, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Saudi Arabia and UAE, these powerful direct experiences with distant peoples and musicians have shaped the bands world view and shifted the groups direction towards bridging cultural gaps through music, educational programs and workshops.The Henhouse Prowlers released two albums in 2017, including Live fromKyrgyzstan in March and the phenomenal studio album Separation Man inNovember. 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.
