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—a soulful quartet at the intersection of Americana, country, blues, jazz, gospel, bluegrass, cowboy, and swing. Foxes In The HenHouse is the versatile Pamela Joyce on guitar, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica, drums, washboard, and vocals. It’s bassist Dorian Bartley throwing her lush, throaty voice into lead and harmony vocal parts. It’s Kathy Mezger bringing her jazz-blues approach to guitar and mandolin, and adding her sweet voice to the mix. And it’s Linda Sullivan, spicing it all up on fiddle with rich and melodic lines. www.foxesinthehenhousemusic.com
