The Special Consensus Bluegrass Band proudly celebrated its 41st anniversary in 2016. Special C is a superb bluegrass outfit in a classic vein but with more than enough modern sensibilities to attract every ear in this now pleasantly fractionating genre. Band leader/banjo player and founding member Greg Cahill was awarded the IBMA Distinguished Achievement Award in 2011. Other band members include guitarist Rick Faris, bass player Dan Eubanks, and mandolin player Nick Dumas. Special Consensus records for Compass Records and the 2012 band release “Scratch Gravel Road” was GRAMMY nominated for Best Bluegrass Album. “Country Boy: A Bluegrass Tribute to John Denver” received awards in October 2014 from the International Bluegrass Music Association for Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year and Recorded Event of the Year. Special C’s latest Compass Records CD, “Long I Ride”, received three 2016 IBMA nominations and the award for Instrumental Recorded Project of the Year for “Fireball”.
