The Special Consensus is a four person acoustic bluegrass band that began performing in the Midwest in the spring of 1975. The first band album was released in 1979 when the band began touring on a national basis, they have recorded fifteen albums since then. In 1984, The 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. In 2003 they performed on the Grand Ole Opry at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. The band’s sixteenth recording, “Scratch Gravel Road,” was released by Compass Records in March 2012 and was nominated for the Best Bluegrass Album GRAMMY Award. The song “Monroe’s Doctrine” from that recording was nominated for the IBMA Recorded Event of the Year award in 2012. “Country Boy – A Bluegrass Tribute to John Denver”, the band’s seventeenth album, was released in March 2014 to instant critical acclaim.
