The Prowlers were able to stop into the small mining town of Hanna, Wyoming this week and do two full days of Bluegrass Ambassadors programming, culminating in a collaborative performance in front of the students, their parents and members of the community. We'd like to extend a huge thanks to the HES principal Mark Shipp, the IBMA Foundation, Deering Banjo's and the Platte Valley Arts Council for making it possible!
The curiosity was palpable and there were moments where it felt like we were giving them a sense of both the music and the actual culture of America. Many of the students had never been to the US and asked questions about everything from politics to what schools were like on our side of the Atlantic.
There's currently a great opportunity to put an eight-week program in arts education together, funded by Ingenuity. Please contact us if you're a teacher or an administrator so we can discuss the details. Thank you!
The Prowlers trip to Kyrgyzstan was an incredible journey and for the first time ever the band is able to bring some of the trip home with them. Every show from their 12 day tour of the beautiful country of Kyrgyzstan was recorded and now select tracks have been put together into a full lenght album, including their collaboration with the local Bishkek band Ordo Sahkna. You can purchase it here. Thank you!
