Special Consensus – Grammy nominated in 2012 and 2018

The Special Consensus, a bluegrass band formed in 1975, has achieved a contemporary sound in over

four decades of performing, making their music a modern classic. Band leader and founder Greg Cahill is

a renowned banjo player, a recipient of the prestigious Distinguished Achievement Award from the

International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) in 2011 and a 2020 inductee into the Society for the

Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America (SPBGMA) Hall of Greats. Under his direction, Special

Consensus has released 20 recordings and received five awards from the IBMA and two Grammy

nominations for Best Bluegrass Album (2012 and 2018). Special Consensus’ sound is grounded in a deep

appreciation and understanding of bluegrass music built on the foundation of Cahill’s banjo playing and

now includes Greg Blake (guitar), Michael Prewitt (mandolin), and Dan Eubanks (bass). Rivers and Roads,

the band’s 19th recording released by Compass Records, was nominated for the 2018 Best Bluegrass

Album Grammy and received two IBMA awards for Album of the Year and Instrumental Recorded

Performance of the Year for the tune “Squirrel Hunters.” Chicago Barn Dance, released by Compass

Records in 2020, received the 2020 IBMA Song of the Year Award for "Chicago Barn Dance."
