The time has come! It is fitting that the snow is falling hard in Chicago today on our last day in town for a month. After a couple days in Washington DC, we depart for a month long trip to Africa with the American Music Abroad (AMA) program. We’ll be performing, conducting workshops, collaborating with local musicians, and much more in 4 countries (The Republic of Congo, Liberia, Mauritania, and Niger). We’re beyond excited and honored to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime adventure! Run by the US State Department and American Voices, AMA has a long history of cultural ambassadorship (click here for more information). Please make sure to follow our Facebook page here, as we will be updating it with as many pictures, statuses, and blog posts as we can. Thank you all for your support and love, and we will see you state-side in December!
Friends and family, we are excited to announce we’ll be back at our old stomping grounds, The Red Line Tap in Rogers Park, to ring in the New Year this year! As usual, there will be bluegrass & beer, vibes & vino, whimsical waltzing & well whiskey, and much, Much more. We sure do hope you can attend, and we here at the Henhouse Prowlers wish you the happiest and healthiest holiday season!!

Friends, after a full week of bluegrass music in Carolina, we’re setting our sights on the weeks ahead. After a short stint in the Midwest (Indiana & Kentucky), we’ll be taking our brand of Chicago Grass back to Colorado! We’ll be hitting Fort Collins, Boulder, Denver, and Winter Park—find our full schedule here. As you may know, many areas in CO were devastatingly affected by recent floods. People are still recovering and we feel it only appropriate to attempt to give back to a community that has given us so much. One of the towns that was hit the hardest is Lyons (home of Planet Bluegrass and the RockyGrass Festival). Having learned of a fund that goes straight to musicians that lost instruments, belongings, and even their homes, we will be putting out a collection jar at each of our CO shows with all donations going straight to the Lyons Musicians Relief Fund. We hope it can help in some small way. Thank you all for your continued support, and tell your friends to come help us help CO musicians keep spreading beautiful music!
We’ve had a great few days on our way to Raleigh, NC. Having been able to play with friends, new and old, in beautiful venues big, small, outdoor, and in, we’re pumped to keep the good times rolling at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s (IBMA) World of Bluegrass! We’re honored to be an Official Showcase Artist, and will be playing and prowling about all week long. See below our detailed schedule; Hope to catch you around town!
