Henhouse Prowlers
Henhouse Prowlers
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 enthralling 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 organization that uses traditional American music as a foundation to talk about folk music and culture's all over the world. The Henhouse Prowlers 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.

Cole Quest and The City Pickers are a group of New York City musicians connected by friendship and a love of bluegrass.

"What a crack team of pickers and voices you have put together. Great dobro playing, world class harmonica. Damn it sure sounds fun with your city pickers at the microphone.” - Ketch Secor / Old Crow Medicine Show
