A gourmet cook and one of the top bluegrass musicians in the world? All in a day’s work for Frank Solivan. After six years performing with the United States Navy Band's elite country and bluegrass group Country Current, Frank Solivan formed Dirty Kitchen. It's a tight knit group of some of the best musicians on the scene today. With the 2010 release of their self-titled album, Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, the stellar reviews started rolling in. The album made Best of 2010 lists from coast to coast and continues to be in heavy rotation on radio and internet stations world wide. A year later, in 2011, Frank’s debut album was still at the top of the bluegrass and roots music charts! As David Magee of the Bluegrass Special put it, Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen is, “… bound for greater glory.” Raised in the bluegrass tradition from California to Alaska, Frank Solivan has been an award-winning musician almost since he was old enough to hold up a fiddle, as well as a key mentor to some of bluegrass’s young stars. Frank Solivan is a multi-instrumentalist who sings with power and passion, writes articulate songs that go straight to the heart, and combines the pure, hard drive of classic bluegrass with contemporary twenty-first century acoustic music. He’s also an excellent band leader, coaxing amazing performances out of the members of Dirty Kitchen, each of whom are master musicians. Banjoist Mike Munford’s impeccable timing, exquisite tone and jaw-dropping technique has found him on stage with Peter Rowan, the Rice Brothers, Lynn Morris and Tony Trischka. The 21 year old Chris Luquette has synthesized a style all his own, defined by flat out good taste, drive and energy. His top shelf musicianship really shines! Danny Booth's supportive bass lines are laden with excellent timing, feel, powerful tone and fluid technique. He is also a remarkable singer, known for his smooth lead and seamlessly blended harmonies. Together, Dirty Kitchen unites the best in bluegrass with Solivan’s beautifully written Americana songs.
Melody Walker’s soulful songwriting and Jacob Groopman's picking prowess join together in a duo that is creating it's own genre: "Americali". Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area and the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, respectively, Walker and Groopman represent a real fusion of ideas and sounds, with the literacy and musicianship to pull it off. Their voices harmonize earnestly over intricate textures of banjo, guitars and mandolin, as they sing of ancient truths and futuristic myths, bringing their eclectic influences to life in traditional forms.
