Door County resident nominated for Grammy

A Door County musician, Nick Dumas, and his band, Special Consensus, have been nominated for a Grammy award. The nomination came in the category "Best Bluegrass Album" for their 2018 release titled Rivers and Roads. Dumas, who is the mandolin player and a Door County resident for about two years, has been a member of Special Consensus since 2015. The band, however, was created back in 1975. Dumas said he has been a fan of the band all of his life and throughout his start as a younger musician but never thought he would eventually join the group. He also said some of his biggest influences came from past incarnations of the group.



Dumas, who is originally from the Seattle area, said that he enjoys the peaceful nature of Door County and the friendliness of its residents. Special Consensus has won numerous International Bluegrass Music Association awards, and the Grammy nomination is their second since 2013. The Grammys will be held on February 10th in Los Angeles.
