      Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen


      With chops so hot, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen were named IBMAs 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, yet the accolades dont end there.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., Frank 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."The band packs dazzling solos into dizzyingly small spaces, funneling bluegrass's love of dexterity into pop's love of brevity." Grayson Haver Currin, Indy Week "On the aptly-titled Family, Friends & Heroes mandolinist Frank Solivan shows why one of the rising stars in bluegrass circles deserves a higher profile in the wider world of Americana." Don McLeese, No Depression "Shaken and stirred, Solivans gang of grassers amount to a not-so-secret recipe thats full of home and heart." Tom Netherland, Herald Courier "Family made Franks passion for and career in music possible. Friends have come easily as hes taken his open-hearted way with bluegrass on the road, and heroes have guided his journey and, in many cases, have become like family. Family, Friends & Heroes is a toast to things that matter in life and a testimony to how good music can feel when talent is fused with soul and sincerity." - Craig Havighurst, Music City Roots"For those of you whove been spending time under a bluegrass rock lately, Solivan and his bandmates are one of the hottest acts around." Shawn Underwood, Twangville "If Tim OBrien and Alison Brown ever had a love child, it might just be Frank Solivan. This newgrass/bluegrass foursome spirals through skin-tight banjo picking, razor-sharp mandolin and jazz-tinged concentric circles all with a degree of control that balances technical precision and improvisational virtuosity." - Siobhan Long, Irish Times"Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen are what bluegrass music needs these days. They are master musicians who fully understand the history and tradition but arent afraid to explore new sounds and concepts." - Brian Paul Swenk, Bluegrass Today
