Pioneer PBS’ Grassland Jam will feature the world-traveling Henhouse Prowlers on Saturday, June 22 at 7 p.m. The program will be available for online viewing immediately after the broadcast on www.pioneer.org/grasslandjam. The broadcast will be repeated on Monday, May 24 at noon.
The Henhouse Prowlers are Bluegrass Ambassadors. Founded more than 13 years ago with the simple desire to play original and powerful bluegrass, this quartet now finds themselves at the intersection of performance, diplomacy and education.
The Prowlers have now traveled to more than 25 countries across the globe, working with the U.S. State Department and under their own nonprofit, Bluegrass Ambassadors, incorporating music from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and more into their already robust repertoire of unique traditional American music.
The performance was recorded at the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old Time Music Association Festival held in Richmond in August 2018.
