Coming live to TSEAC from the Windy City of Chicago ‘The Special Consensus’ are a contemporary bluegrass band with a dynamic modern twist.

The upbeat and catchy sound of the band is reminiscent of traditional trademark southern American bluegrass music whilst cleverly combining the musical innovations of today to create a unique and energised sound that invites you to sing along. 

With the foundation of Greg’s unique banjo playing style, Greg Blake (guitar), Dan Eubanks (bass) and Michael Prewitt (mandolin) effortlessly support each other and consistently maintain their bluegrass center whether they’re playing a jazz-tinged instrumental or a song from any of their award-winning recordings. These four talented vocalists and instrumentalists follow their creative desires without straying too far from their roots.

Evolving over four decades, they have released twenty albums, received six IBMA awards and had two Grammy nominations.

Their latest release received five 2020 IBMA nominations and the title song “Chicago Barn Dance” received the 2020 IBMA Song of the Year Award.
