Repeatedly tagged as one of the most exciting bands on the bluegrass scene, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen were awarded the 2014 International Bluegrass Music Association’s Instrumental Group of the Year Award and 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 Frank Solivan and bassist Jeremy Middleton are 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, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen 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.
