Special Consensus is a four person acoustic bluegrass band that began performing in the Midwest in the spring of 1975. In 1984, the band initiated the Traditional American Music Program in schools across the country and began appearing on cable television and National Public Radio shows. As a result, the band has been featured in cover stories in Bluegrass Unlimited in 1998, 2005 and 2010 and several of the band recordings have received Highlight Reviews and appeared on the National Bluegrass Survey chart in that publication.
In November 2003, Special Consensus received a standing ovation after the first band performance on the Grand Ole Opry at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium.
International tours have brought Special Consensus to the United Kingdom, Canada, Europe, Ireland and South America.
