March 30th, 2018 – Special Consensus released their new album, RIVERS AND ROADS. The core band – Greg Cahill (banjo, vocals), Rick Faris (guitar, vocals), Nick Dumas (mandolin, vocals) and Dan Eubanks (bass, vocals) – has never sounded better. They show depth in their vocal performance and instrumental mastery on the album’s lead-off track “Way Down the River Road,” a John Hartford original, augmented by the dancing feet of former John Hartford Stringband member Mark Schatz. Watch a clip of Mark’s fantastic footwork in the Compass Sound Studio HERE.
Over the past 40+ years, the members have served as evangelists for the genre, bringing their own mid-western spin on bluegrass to audiences around the globe.
