Attention Bluegrass Buffs: Be Sure to Check Out This Acclaimed Band on Friday

Love bluegrass? If so, you are in luck. Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, the latest darlings of the bluegrass music genre, will perform live at Mauch Chunk Opera House on Friday, January 4th. This is one concert event you certainly don’t want to miss!

Since leaving the cold climes of Alaska for the bluegrass hotbed of Washington, D.C., Frank Solivan has built a reputation as a monster mandolinist — and become a major festival attraction with his band, Dirty Kitchen. Their respect and deep understanding of the tradition collides, live on stage, with jazz virtuosity creating an unforgettable, compelling performance.

With chops so hot, Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen were named IBMA’s 2016 Instrumental Group of the Year for the second time, with a third nomination in 2017. Their critically acclaimed album Cold Spell earned a 2015 Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Album of the Year, yet the accolades don’t end there.

Solivan, with banjoist Mike Munford, 2013 IBMA Banjo Player of the Year, award-winning guitarist Chris Luquette and bassist Jeremy Middleton, simmer a progressive bluegrass stew of infinite instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills soon to be featured once again on their new album If You Can't Stand the Heat slated to drop January 25th, 2019.

See the band live before their latest album drops at Mauch Chunk Opera House! Tickets are 18 dollars and may be purchased online.
