Greg Cahill checks in

We just heard from Greg Cahill, Special Consensus founder and fearless leader, about how they are spending their Christmas vacation…

I can’t believe I will have been touring and recording with the band for 35 years in 2010!

The new recording will feature 12 songs from previous Special C releases along with the new songs – all original compositions performed by myself on banjo and veteran Special C bass player David Thomas – along with recent addition Ryan Roberts (Eastern Canada Songwriter of the Year and Best Bluegrass Album of the Year) on guitar and newest member Rick Faris (formerly of the KS-based Faris Family Band) on mandolin.

Wishing Bluegrass Today and the bluegrass community a very Happy Holiday season!”
