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’s elite Country Current, he formed Dirty Kitchen, a tight knit group of some of the best bluegrass players on the scene today. With the 2010 release of their self-titled album, 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 root’s music charts! As David Magee of the Bluegrass Special put it Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen is “… bound for greater glory.” True to form, Frank was picked for the brand-new Putumayo compilation, Bluegrass, where his bluegrass cover of Kate Wolf’s “Across the Great Divide” was made part of this international release in 2012. This year has brought even more reason to celebrate as they were signed by legendary Nashville record label, Compass Records. The band’s latest release On the Edge is due to hit the streets April 30th! Raised in the bluegrass tradition from California to Alaska, Frank 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. He’s also an excellent band leader, coaxing amazing performances out of the members of Dirty Kitchen, each of whom are master musicians. Also from Alaska, bassist Danny Booth is known for his supportive bass lines laden with powerful tone and fluid technique, as well as for his lead and harmony vocals. 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. Newest member, Seattle guitarist Chris Luquette is one of the hardest working musicians in his hometown, respected for his wide repertoire of guitar styles, including his studies with Brazilian composer Jovino Santos Net
