Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen

Alaska native Frank Solivan is a monster mandolinist—stretching genres, picking through classic and unexpected covers, and racing and rambling through originals with his Grammy Award-nominated band, Dirty Kitchen. The 2014 and 2016 International Bluegrass Music Association’s Instrumental Group of the Year is composed of Solivan, bassist Jeremy Middleton, award-winning guitarist Chris Luquette, and 2013 IBMA Banjo Player of the Year Mike Munford. Get ready for a scorching bluegrass/newgrass stew sure to start ELLNORA night two ablaze!

This performance will last approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.
