Five miles outside of Winnipeg, Russell Loewen runs a vegetable farm where he and his wife also raise chickens. The chicken coop also serves as Russell’s music studio. Why? Why not?
Over the last while, Russell discovered that when he sings certain notes, the volume of chicken cackles increased. He began to incorporate their contributions into his performances. He’s now got a group called Morning Jabber Cackle Choir. There are about 200 recordings so far including “Sweet Home Manitoba” and “Cluck a Song.”
When he started posting these performances on a dedicated YouTube channel, he started to receive comments from all over the world. Please enjoy this sample.
