Blue Flame is a fusion bluegrass trio that blends many different genres into their own sound. The trio uses bluegrass, swing, country and jazz in their songs and they thrive on improvising and creating something new each and every time they perform. Blue Flame features Savanna Batan on fiddle/lead vocals, her brother Ethan Batan on mandolin/vocals, and Luke Lovejoy on guitar/vocals. With nationally awarded musicians and plenty of jokes from Luke (free of charge), Blue Flame is a performance that you won’t want to miss!
Jennie DeVoe is an independent singer/songwriter with a soulful-blues-americana vibe whom Bonnie Raitt calls, "A great songwriter", while Indie-music's.com Heidi Drockelman says, "Jennie is a truly unique vocal talent...Her powerhouse voice can stop you in your tracks but it also possesses a sweetness that surges and sears the soul."
Founded over 16 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 been 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. On stage, in workshops and wherever they are, the Henhouse Prowlers find and spread the commonality we share as human beings through the universal language of music.
