About

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 in 2017. Their critically acclaimed album Cold Spell earned a 2015 GRAMMY nomination for Best Bluegrass Album of the Year. Solivan, with banjoist Mike Munford, 2013 IBMA Banjo Player of the Year; award-winning guitarist Chris Luquette; and bassist Jeremy Middleton, simmer a progressive bluegrass stew of infinite instrumental, vocal, and songwriting skills soon to be featured once again on their new album If You Can't Stand the Heat slated to drop this fall. Since leaving the cold climes of Alaska for the bluegrass hotbed of Washington, D.C., Solivan has built a reputation as a monster mandolinist — and become a major festival attraction with his band, Dirty Kitchen. Their respect and deep understanding of the tradition collides, live on stage, with jazz virtuosity creating an unforgettable, compelling performance.
