The Special Consensus is a four person acoustic bluegrass band that began performing in the Midwest in 1975. Their recording “Scratch Gravel Road” was nominated Best Bluegrass Album Grammy Award in 2012. This superb bluegrass outfit have received several IBMA Awards and just released the 19th band recording “River and Roads” in March 2018. The center of Special Consensus is co-founder Greg Cahill on Banjo, along with (Madolinist) Rick Faris, (Bassist) David Thomas and (Guitarist) Dustin Benson. Special Consensus approaches this hallowed American musical form with boundless energy and an aesthetic reverence that tickles the rib, tugs at the heart and puts a restless two-step in boots and are feet.
