why book special consensus?
Special Consensus is a four-person acoustic, bluegrass band that began performing in the Midwest in the spring of 1975. Their first album was released in 1979 when the band began touring on a national basis, and the second was released in 1983. In 1984, Special Consensus initiated the Traditional American Music (TAM) Program in schools across the country and began appearing on cable television and national Public Radio shows.
The band has since appeared on The Nashville Network’s show Fire On The Mountain, and toured for three seasons as 4/5 of the cast in the musical Cotton Patch Gospel. Special Consensus has performed at traditional bluegrass festivals and has also been the band to bridge the gap between traditional and progressive bands at more diverse festivals and fairs. The band repertoire also includes songs for dancing at clubs or parties.
