Special Consensus is led by Greg Cahill, banjo player and recipient of the Distinguished Achievement Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), and includes Greg Blake (guitar), Dan Eubanks (bass) and Michael Prewitt (mandolin). Special Consensus has received six awards from the IBMA and two Grammy nominations.

The Special Consensus is a bluegrass band that has achieved a contemporary sound in their four decades of performing, making their music a modern classic. They are four talented vocalists and instrumentalists who follow their creative desires without straying too far from their bluegrass roots.

“Rivers and Roads” (Compass Records) was nominated for the 2018 Best Bluegrass Album GRAMMY award and received 2018 IBMA awards for Album of the Year and Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year (“Squirrel Hunters”). “Chicago Barn Dance” (Compass Records) 2020 celebrates the 45th band anniversary and the connection of country and bluegrass music to Chicago from the time of the WLS “National Barn Dance” - precursor to the Grand Ole Opry.

The title song “Chicago Barn Dance” received the 2020 IBMA Song of the Year Award.    Instagram: specialconsensus

Afternoon Tea At The Bistro 
4 PM 

Various Dates - see the calendar for the next upcoming event.

"Growing up, one of the things I remember the most is my Grandmother having her afternoon tea - a daily staple in her life.  It was to be served in a teacup with a saucer and a few of her favorite cookies or sandwich bites to enjoy, at 4 p.m., right before the evening meal or activity.  

Carrying that memory with me, I am excited to share that experience with you by introducing "Afternoon Tea at The Bistro".   

We hope you will be able to attend - and bring a friend or your family and come enjoy a true afternoon tea with us."
