Special C’s side trip to Louisville

Greg Cahill of Special Consensus with Bob Mitchell at the studios of WFPK-FM (11/18/16)When Special Consensus made the journey to Shepherdsville, KY last week for a show in Gary Brewer’s Friday Night Bluegrass Series, the band took a side trip to Louisville to make a guest appearance on Bob Mitchell’s Best Of Bluegrass program, recorded at WFPK-FM.

The guys played several songs in the studio and chatted with Mitchell about their recently-concluded European tour and their success at September’s IBMA Awards where they won the organizations Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year for the version of the reso-guitar classic, Fireball, recorded with Rob Ickes, Trey Hensley, and Alison Brown.

Their performance and interview will be part of this weekend’s Best Of Bluegrass, which broadcasts on nine stations on different times and dates. It airs from 7:00-9:00 p.m. (EST) on WCHQ-FM in Louisville at 100.9 FM, and online at crescenthillradio.com. Past shows are also archived there after airing.

Bob shared these images of Special C with him in the studio and at The Shepherdsville Barn later on the evening of the 18th.


Special Consensus is Greg Cahill on banjo, Rick Faris on guitar, Nick Dumas on mandolin, and Dan Eubanks on bass.
