PISTOL RIVER – The Pistol River Concert Association presents Special Consensus at 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14, at the Pistol River Friendship Hall, 24252 Carpenterville Road.

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.

Tickets are $15 and available at Wright’s Custom Framing and Art Supplies in Brookings and Gold Beach Books in Gold Beach. Tickets may also be reserved online at www.pistolriver.com/tickets or by calling 541-247-2848. A $5 student discount or refund is available at the door with student identification.
