Repeatedly tagged as one of the most exciting bands on the bluegrass scene, and winner of the 2014 International Bluegrass Music Association’s Instrumental Group of the Year Award, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen have earned a slew of accolades since joining forces in the Washington, D.C. area, a longtime breeding ground for some of the genre’s finest players. Lead vocalist/mandolinist/fiddler Solivan and bassist Dan Booth have known one another since they were teens in Alaska; they’re joined by banjoist Mike Munford, winner of IBMA’s 2013 Banjo Player of The Year Award, and guitarist Chris Luquette, who won IBMA’s 2013 Instrumentalist of The Year Momentum Award. Noted for individual virtuosity, well-executed interplay and close harmonies, they expertly deliver precise, intricate compositions without ever stepping on one another’s musical toes. And though they use traditional instruments, they refuse to be bound by tradition; they much prefer to travel wherever the music takes them.
