Chris Jones & The Night Drivers are making some of the most distinctively elegant yet driving bluegrass music to be heard anywhere today, and they’re delivering it with a unique blend of dry wit, emotional authenticity and broad humor that’s won the loyalty of a growing number of fans across the country. Steve Martin referred to the Night Drivers as “. . . some of the best players in bluegrass! Chris Jones’ voice is up there with the great masters.” Their latest release, Made to Move, stresses the band’s original material, exciting arrangements, and soulful vocals, and it has yielded two #1 songs so far on the bluegrass airplay charts. Collectively, Chris Jones & The Night Drivers have won nine IBMA awards.








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 19 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. International tours have brought the band to Australia, Canada, Europe, South America, Ireland and the United Kingdom. The Special C has appeared in concert with many symphony orchestras nationwide and has brought an informative in-school presentation to schools nationally and internationally since 1984. Band leader/banjo player Greg Cahill is the former President/Board Chair of the Nashville-based International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), the former Board Chair of the Nashville-based Foundation for Bluegrass Music and a recipient of the prestigious IBMA Distinguished Achievement Award (in 2011). Other band members include guitar player Rick Faris, bass player Dan Eubanks and mandolin player Nick Dumas. The 2012 band release Scratch Gravel Road (Compass Records) was GRAMMY nominated for Best Bluegrass Album and two songs from the 2014 band release Country Boy: A Bluegrass Tribute To John Denver  (Compass Records) won IBMA awards for Recorded Event of the Year and Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year. The tune “Fireball” (featuring special guests Rob Ickes, Trey Hensley and Alison Brown) on the 2016 Compass Records band recording Long I Ride won the 2016 IBMA Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year Award.

With threads of singer-songwriter, rock, and jam band music woven throughout, The Wooks are as at home on a festival stage as they are in a barn in the heart of Kentucky's horse country. The Wooks: Aaron Bibelhauser (Banjo), CJ Cain (Lead Guitar), Arthur Hancock (Guitar), Roddy Puckett (Bass), were born over some 20 years time somewhere between an Irish pub, an IBMA Songwriter Showcase, and a festival jam circle. Inspired by legends and trailblazers like Crowe, Whitley, Simpson, Bush, Stapleton, and Rice who cut their teeth on stages throughout the Bluegrass Region, The Wooks translate the sights and sounds of the people, hills, bars, roads, and creeks around them into songs and shows that captivate. With both respect for their heritage and innovative originality, The Wooks are the natural evolution of a sound that has always been there.​ Since their inception in late 2014 The Wooks have been making noise in central Kentucky and beyond. The band won the prestigious 2016 RockyGrass Band Competition, placed in the finals for the 2017 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, and were a 2017 IBMA Momentum Award Nominee. Their first record, Little Circles, recorded at Compass Studios and produced by Alison Brown, debuted at #6 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart.
