The Special Consenus bluegrass band from Chicago is grounded in a deep appreciation and understanding of bluegrass music whilst utilising the innovations of today.

Evolving over four decades, they have released twenty albums, received 6 International Bluegrass Music Awards (IBMA) and had 2 Grammy nominations.

Alongside band founder Greg Cahill’s unique banjo playing, Greg Blake (guitar), Dan Eubanks (double bass) and Michael Prewitt (mandolin) effortlessly support each other.

Whether it’s a jazzy instrumental or a bluegrass classic delivered with 4 part vocal harmony, these talented musicians manage to follow their creative desires without straying too far from their roots.

Their latest release received 5 2020 IBMA nominations and the title song 'Chicago Barn Dance' received the 2020 IBMA Song of the Year Award.
