Founded in 1975, The Special Consensus is a professional four-person bluegrass band that tours nationally and internationally. The group has released 11 recordings and appeared on numerous radio and television programs nationwide, including National Public Radio and the Nashville Network.

The group created the Traditional American Music (TAM) in 1984 with the objective of introducing students to bluegrass music, an American-born form of traditional music. The group’s in-school program includes music performances interspersed with an explanation of how bluegrass music originated, the composition and the purpose of each instrument and its role of the band. The group also discusses how its vocal harmonies are blended.

Special Consensus’ mix of great music and enlightening educational program have made them a popular act at schools, libraries, family nights and a host of other events.


“Special Consensus exceeded our expectations as artists-in-residence. Your Traditional American Music program for the schools was well conceived and masterfully performed. Your community outreach mini-concerts were great fun and resulted in promoting ticket sales to the capstone concert. You earned the well-deserved standing ovation you received during the capstone concert.”

Steven J. Schmidt, General Manager
Rochester Civic Music, Rochester, MN

“Awesome! What an incredible show. Please come again. Very educationally geared for K-6.”
