Special C. in Ireland, 9-27 Jan. 2015: update

The Special Consensus: (l-r) Dan Eubanks, Greg Cahill,
Dustin Benson, Rick Faris

Thanks to Nigel Martyn and his Old Flattop agency for organising the January 2015 tour by The Special Consensus (USA), details of which (including venue location maps) are now on the band's website.

The Special C. - who gained the Instrumental Recorded Performance and Recorded Event of the Year titles in the 2014 IBMA awards two months ago, and are now nominated for four Grammy awards - have been coming to Ireland regularly since 1995, and their visits have always been memorable. After performing at the Shannonside Winter Music Weekend, the band will be touring in England and Wales for a week before returning to Ireland for three shows in Munster. Their Irish dates are shown below; we find it hard to believe that 12 and 13 January will remain free for long... [We were right! Thanks to Ray O'Brien and 'Bluegrass in Ireland' for forwarding the two extra dates supplied by Nigel, as now shown below.]
