On this week’s Pickin on WHRV, we feature the new release from the Chicago based Special Consensus band. The album pays homage to the long-running nationally syndicated WLS radio program Barn Dance which was a precursor to the Grand Ole Opry. Chicago Barn Dance comes on the heels of their 2018 Grammy nominated Rivers and Roads CD. Special Consensus was also nominated for a Grammy in 2013 for Scratch Gravel Road and had a huge hit with their 2014 homage entitled Country Boy: A Bluegrass Tribute to John Denver. Special Consensus has been performing for 45 years and is considered as one of the prized musical treasures of the Chicago music scene. Hear new music with Special Consensus, Sunday at 7:00 p.m. on Pickin on 89.5, or listen online.
