    Bluegrass Workshop with The Hen House Prowlers!

    Michael Sieffert, Daniel Leo, Christna Van Wijk, Heath Hollingsworth and Charles Nibelle attended a workshop for a visiting ensemble from the USA: the Henhouse Prowlers. They are a bluegrass band; traditional folk music from the Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia. The instruments are Bass, Banjo, Mandolin, guitar and violin and voice.

    The workshop was for students who play acoustical string instruments (Bass, cello, violin, viola, guitar, banjo, and any of the Arabic stringed instruments) as well as students who like to sing. It was an amazing opportunity to learn some tunes, learn some improvisation skills and then to play with the band.
