Her release “Hole In Your Halo” has recently been nominated for best Americana song in the 12th Annual IMA Music Awards.

She has toured and shared the stage with Lucinda Williams, Ralph Stanley, John Prine, Ron Sexsmith, Shawn Colvin, Joan Armatrading, Iris Dement, Richard Thompson, George Jones and more.

Henhouse Prowlers at the B SIDE July 24th

The Henhouse Prowlers will perform at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

The group uses traditional bluegrass as a base with an uptempo drive and bouncing mid-tempo grooves, all while covering contemporary topics in a largely original repertoire, according to a media release. 

While not on stage performing or on the road touring, the Henhouse Prowlers have long been 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, Ill. Through four weeks of hour-length assemblies and performances in the schools, they perfected their group instruction of the core bluegrass instruments – banjo, guitar, bass, mandolin and fiddle – and the importance of this music in American cultural history.

Tickets are $7.

B Side is at 1 Clinton Plaza in Oneonta. For more information, call 432-2053, email bsideballroom@gmail.com or visitwww.bsideballroom.com.
