SPECIAL CONSENSUS '25th Anniversary'

  • $13.50


Twenty five years is a long time for a man to make bluegrass music, especially when the music has been of a consistent high quality. With this release, Greg Cahill (with his band Special Consensus) marks his quarter century anniversary in the bluegrass music. "25th Anniversary" is a real treat for both the legion of fans who have supported Cahill and company through the years and for any fan of good bluegrass. Twelve of the album's twenty (!) tracks are new pieces, featuring the by-now trademark Cahill banjo in a variety of settings. You'll hear everything from gospel and folk influences to a great nod to Western swing, and the band somehow manages to make it cohesive (and above all, fun) throughout. As a special treat, the remaining eight tracks on the album are a look back at the history of Special Consensus, giving new fans a taste of the band's extensive history and providing longtime admirers with a nice trip down memory lane.
