Without James Weigel, Chicago bluegrass mainstay, Henhouse Prowlers would be a very different band. He was one of the original six members, stepping in on dobro from the ashes of the Outlaw Family Band. James consistently writes songs that leave you winded, weary and reconsidering your lot in life.
Weigel has been busy over the past 1/2 dozen years, still writing powerful tunes and teaching up a storm. He’s a popular teacher in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood, and is currently working on some comprehensive instructional books for rock guitar.
Besides his dobro chops, James is a very well established electric guitarist. Do yourself a favor and check out this powerful song James wrote and performed with Outlaw Family Band: Separation Man.
