With their latest release Cold Spell landing a 2015 GRAMMY Nomination for Best Bluegrass Album followed by an eight award sweep at the 2015 WAMMIES, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, IBMA’s 2014 Instrumental Group of the Year, can’t slow down!
Since Frank Solivan left the cold climes of Alaska for the bluegrass hotbed of Washington, D.C., he’s built a reputation as a monster mandolinist — and become a major festival attraction with his band, Dirty Kitchen. Solivan, with banjoist Mike Munford, 2013 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’ve been named Washington Area Music Association’s Best Bluegrass Band of the Year for four consecutive years.
“Family made Frank Solivan’s passion for and career in music possible. Friends have come easily as he’s taken his open-hearted way with bluegrass on the road and into venues, where his conviviality (sometimes paired with his culinary gifts) leaves audiences closer to him and to one another. Heroes have guided his journey as a mandolinist, singer, songwriter and bandleader. And in many cases, those heroes have become friends and many of his friends have become like family. It’s wonderful but unsurprising to see these threads braided together knot the Family, Friends & Heroes album. It’s a toast to the things that matter in life and testimony to how good music can feel when talent is fused with soul and sincerity.” – Craig Havighurst, Music City Roots (January 2016)
“Frank Solivan just keeps getting better, as a songwriter, arranger, singer and, not the least, instrumentalist. But don’t take my word for it. Check out his new project for Compass Records, Family, Friends & Heroes.” – David Morris, Bluegrass Today (March 2015)
