The Henhouse Prowlers bring bluegrass to the historic Boothbay Harbor Opera House stage on Saturday, April 2.
On record – including their 2021 release and ninth full-length album, “The Departure” – the band explores their collective life experiences through songwriting and intricate instrumentation. While bluegrass is the foundation of The Prowlers’ music, the band bends and presses the traditional form into a sound all its own.
Working with the US State Department and under their own non-profit organization, Bluegrass Ambassadors, the Prowlers have toured in over 25 countries around the world. The band’s experiences with people and musicians across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East have shaped the band’s worldview and broadened the band’s focus on bridging cultural gaps with music, educational programs and workshops. Using American traditional music as a foundation, bridging folk music and cultures from around the world, The Prowlers incorporate international elements into their already strong repertoire of unique American traditional music.
Advance discounted tickets are $25 and are available at the Opera House box office at 86 Townsend Ave. or by calling (207) 633-5159. Regular tickets are $30 and are available online at boothbayoperahouse.com and at the door the day of the concert. All seats are general admission. Seating doors open at 7 p.m., with the Prowlers taking the stage at 7:30 p.m.
