Chicken Wire Empire-They are back again this year! Contemporary tones blend with traditional roots in the sound of this Milwaukee-based band. The band was formed in 2012 and has wasted no time establishing themselves as one of the up-and-coming bluegrass ensembles in the Midwest. The band is Tyan Ogburn (mandolin), Jordan Kroeger (upright bass), Seth Foerster (guitar) and John Peik (banjo).
The Special Consensus - a superb Chicago-based bluegrass outfit in a classic vein but with more than enough modern sensibilities to attract every ear in this now pleasantly fractionating genre. their 2012 album "Scratch Gravel Road" was nominated for a Grammy as Best Bluegrass Album. Band leader and banjo player is Greg Cahill; Rick Faris (guitar), Dan Eubanks (bass) and Nick Dumas (mandolin).
