Thirteen years in the making, Chicago’s Henhouse Prowlers have built a reputation for hard work and non-stop touring, playing music inspired by the roots of bluegrass while branching out into a sound uniquely their own. From lightning fast picking, to sentimental ballads—playing storied original material, traditional songs, and contemporary covers—The Prowlers’ live show leaves no one wanting.
Resting on no haunches, the Prowlers just released a new album “Live From Kyrgyzstan” in the spring of 2017. The album was recorded live in and around Bishkek Kyrgyzstan and exemplifies the work the band has done in their extensive international travelling. Not a single show goes by without the band playing one of the many songs they've learned in countries bluegrass bands seldom (if ever) go to.
The boys have worked with the US State Department on six separate trips in ten different countries in Sub-Saharan Africa as well as Russia, Asia and the Middle East. Continuing to push the envelope with their highly original songwriting, tight arrangements, and electrifying stage presence–with the bluegrass mantle on their shoulders and the best fans in the world by their side, The Henhouse Prowlers are here to stay for a long, long time.
