Foxes In The Henhouse / Bio

Foxes In The HenHouse
It don't mean a thang, if it ain't got that twang!

Foxes In The HenHouse is She Done Him Wrong songs. She Got Him Back songs. She Kicked Him Out Once and for All songs. It’s a bluegrass Bob Marley tune. A swinging Jimmie Rodgers number. It’s Frankie and Johnny drinking lemonade under a shade tree with Nina Simone, with a dash a fiddle and a splash of moonshine.

Foxes In The HenHouse is four audacious women with stunning three-part harmonies and mad instrumental skills.

It’s the love-child of Doc Watson and Mavis Staples, this soulful quartet is stopping traffic at the intersection of about 12 kinds of music including, Americana, country, blues, jazz, gospel, bluegrass, cowboy, and swing.

Real roots music, for good times . . . and hard times, too.

Foxes In The HenHouse is the versatile Pamela Joyce on guitar, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, harmonica, cajon, washboard, and vocals. It’s bassist Dorian Bartley throwing her lush, throaty voice into lead and harmony vocal parts. It’s Hannah Jern-Miller bringing her compelling voice along with her guitar and harmonica skills. It’s Alice Fitzwater spicing it all up on fiddle with rich and melodic lines. And if the occasion calls for percussion, Kathie Rothkop joins the Foxes with her stump fiddle, washboard, snare and various foot stompin percussive instruments.

These talented musicians have performed as members of D'Bunchovus, Funksway, The Artifacts, The Gravenstein Mandolin Ensemble, The Bootleg Honeys, Jon Gonzales Stringband, The Hicktones, Manzanita Moon, The Christmas Jugband and the Coverlettes.

Now they’re delighting North Bay audiences with catchy Americana classics and lost gems.

And they do it with the accent on the upbeat.
