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. He and his band Dirty Kitchen’s album Cold Spell was a 2015 Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Album.

Solivan and his band - Mike Munford, 2013 IBMA Banjo Player of the Year; award winning guitarist Chris Luquette; and bassist Jeremy Middleton - simmer a bluegrass, ”new grass” stew with instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills so hot, they have been named 2016 International Bluegrass Music Association Instrumental Group of the Year and Washington Area Music Association’s Best Bluegrass Band of the Year for four consecutive years.

According to Bluegrass Today, “Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen are what bluegrass music needs [—] master musicians who fully understand the history and tradition but aren’t afraid to explore new sounds."

Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley will be opening for Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitcken. Rob Ickes has been playing bluegrass with his much-decorated band Blue Highway for over twenty years, during which time he has been adjudged Bluegrass Dobro Player Of the Year fifteen times. Rob is a longtime, well-established instrumental giant, and Trey Hensley is newly arrived in Music City, bursting with talent both as a vocalist and guitarist. Their new album, Before the Sun Goes Down, is slated for release this winter.
