Eleven years in the making, Chicago’s Henhouse Prowlers have built a reputation for hard work and non-stop touring, playing music inspired by the roots of bluegrass while branching out into a sound uniquely their own. From lightning fast picking, to sentimental ballads—playing storied original material, traditional songs, and contemporary covers—The Prowlers’ live show leaves no one wanting.

Location: Center for the Arts of Homer, 72 South Main St, Homer

5 – Catch one of two final performances of “Sherlock Holmes & The West End Horror”

A despicable theatre critic has been murdered and there’s no end to the list of suspects!  This funny and very theatrical who-dun-it has been called “a dashingly funny play…two hours of sophisticated fun!” by NY Newsday.  A great night out for theatre and mystery lovers alike!
