Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen
Since leaving the cold climes of Alaska for the bluegrass hotbed of Washington, D.C., Frank Solivan has built a reputation as a monster mandolinist — and become a major festival attraction with his band, Dirty Kitchen. Now based in Nashville, TN, their respect and deep understanding of the tradition collides live on stage with jazz virtuosity, creating an unforgettable and compelling performance. With chops so hot, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen were named IBMA's 2016 Instrumental Group of the Year for the second time, with a third nomination for 2017. Solivan, with banjoist Mike Munford, award-winning guitarist Chris Luquette and bassist Jeremy Middleton, simmer a progressive bluegrass stew of infinite instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills featured once again on their latest release If You Can't Stand The Heat, via Compass Records.
