Hold on to your all your personal belongings and fasten your seatbelts! The incredible Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen are set to deliver their solid vocals and blistering instrumentals to the Shelter Island School Auditorium stage at 7:30 pm on Saturday, January 16, 2016.

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, International Bluegrass Music Association’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 upright 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.

“Solivan and his bandmates are one of the hottest acts around.  In a live performance, they tear it up, no other way to describe it.”
