Special Consensus 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. The vocals are spotless, the playing as shiny as a newly minted penny, and music like this is the reason people come to love bluegrass...Special Consensus approaches this hallowed American musical form with boundless energy and an aesthetic reverence that tickles the ribs, tugs at the heart, and puts a restless two-step in boots and bare feet....A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange by Mark S.

This concert is the kick-off to a year of Traditional American Music in the Boundary County School District. Each of the four concert artist groups will present workshops and dialogues with middle and high school students before playing an evening concert for the public to benefit the educational program. The project is proud to have seed support from the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF), and the National Endowment for the Arts. Our hope is that you will come out to enjoy the internationally known and loved Special Consensus, while at the same time supporting the musical education of the youth of Boundary County.
