Chicago’s Henhouse Prowlers bring their unique bluegrass to Kingskerswell
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. And they are returning to Kingskerswell Parish Church.
From lightning fast picking, to sentimental ballads – playing storied original material, traditional songs, and contemporary covers – The Prowlers’ live show leaves no one wanting, says the blurb.
The Prowlers released “Still On That Ride” in the summer of 2015. Along with their cover of the Nigerian pop hit “Chop My Money,” the album consists of 13 original songs with each member collaborating in contribution.
The boys have worked with the US State Department on four separate trips in ten different countries in Sub-Saharan Africa as well as Russia, and put yet another notch in their European belt this recently, touring all over the Benelux and beyond.
They are being supported by Rich Evans, who is a solo artist, he has toured extensively in the USA and Europe and has recorded albums for US labels in Nashville and Chicago.
The ‘Riding Blind EP’ is the latest release and marks a return to a more rootsy, stripped-down recording style.
