Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen
February 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Since Frank Solivan left the cold climes of Alaska for the bluegrass hotbed of Washington, D.C., he has built a reputation as a monster mandolinist and become a major festival attraction with his band, Dirty Kitchen. Solivan, with banjoist Mike Munford, IBMA Banjo Player of the Year, award winning guitarist Chris Luquette and bassist Jeremy Middleton, simmer a bluegrass/newgrass stew from instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills so hot, they were named IBMAs Instrumental Group of the Year.
Dirty Kitchen plays a wide variety of roots music, focusing on bluegrass and acoustic country, with elements of blues, folk, and rock shining through. Powerful vocal harmonies, expressive songwriting, smooth ballads, and instrumental prowess make this versatile group of musicians the perfect fit for listening rooms, festival stages, and everything in-between.
