Eleven 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.
While not on stage performing or on the road touring, the Henhouse Prowlers have long been avid instructors on their respective instruments in the Chicago area. Recently, the Prowlers have found a way to simultaneously merge these two key components of their careers as musicians.
In April 2011, the quartet debuted its comprehensive bluegrass curriculum to elementary and intermediate schools throughout Evanston, Illinois. Through four weeks of hour-length assemblies and performances in the schools, they perfected their group instruction of the basics of bluegrass and the importance of this music in American cultural history.

We make a cool noise. How cool you ask? Well, it's kinda alt-country, alot of rock & roll, add a smidgen of folk, and a dash of blues. Stick in a potent dose of guilt, a dollop of sin, a drop of salvation (just one drop), and equal measures of joy and sadness.
Rhiannon The Nightmare
Raised by the New Cross delta on canned lager, chewing tobacco and heartache, Rhiannon the Nightmare sing wry-tinged songs of love, sadness, beer and joy. "New Cross meets Nashville"
