      Nu-Blu is one of the fastest rising bands in bluegrass. They got their start back in September of 2003, the end result of several of Carolyn’s and Daniel’s previous projects. From the beginning, they’ve embodied the American working band, pushing through challenges that would bring most of us to our knees. Just a few years after their formation, their original record label folded, and Carolyn suffered a stroke that left her unable to speak, let alone sing. But barreling past those early trials toughened them, and the muscle and callouses that came with them have led Nu-Blu to ever-new heights, like their single ͞Jesus and Jones,͟ which had a run on the radio charts as part of their last release, All The Way. Their constant traveling has also changed the way they make music. Several tracks on Vagabonds found their way to the band almost on their own. ͞We were playing this show and we just kinda decided we’d do ͚”Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”, explains Carolyn. ͞We hadn’t rehearsed it; we hadn’t even played it together before. But we pulled it off that night, and the audience loved it. That growing relationship with their audience is what fuels the band both creatively and emotionally; making the thousands of miles they’ve traveled an honor instead of a chore. https://youtu.be/iHqE99M8h7Y

Formed in the Chicago area in 1975, The Special Consensus is a four-person acoustic bluegrass band with a repertoire that features traditional bluegrass standards, original compositions by band members and professional songwriters, and songs from other musical genres performed in the bluegrass format. The band has released 17 recordings and has appeared on numerous National Public Radio programs and cable television shows, including The Nashville Network and the Grand Ole Opry at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.

“Country Boy: A Bluegrass Tribute to John Denver” (the band’s 17th recording, released by Compass Records in March of 2014) was honored in October 2014 by the International Bluegrass Music Association with two major awards: Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year for “Thank God I’m A Country Boy” and Recorded Event of the Year for “Wild Montana Skies”.  Special C’s 18th recording, “Long I Ride”, was nominated by IBMA in 2016 for three awards and was awarded Instrumental Recorded Event of the Year for “Fireball”. https://youtu.be/NgjF1jSHXbM
