Grammy Nominees Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen in Concert
Jan 31 @ 8:00 pm

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 and banjoist Mike Munford (2013 IBMA Banjo Player of the Year), guitarist Chris Luquette (IBMA Instrumentalist of the Year Momentum Award winner) and doghouse bassist Dan Booth simmer a bluegrass/newgrass stew from instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills so hot, they earned a three-peat 2012, 2013 and 2014 Best Bluegrass Band honors from the Washington Area Music Association. These individually brilliant musicians have combined their vocal and songwriting skills to make their new album, Cold Spell, into the perfect progressive album filled with instrumental virtuosity.

NOTE: This concert is rescheduled from the original concert date of Feb. 7 due to the band’s appearance at the Grammys on Feb. 8! Presented by Common Ground on the Hill.
