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 bassist Jeremy Middleton, simmer a bluegrass/newgrass stew from instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills so hot, they were named IBMA’s 2014 Instrumental Group of the Year.

Hailing from Northampton, Massachusetts the Salvation Alley String Band play original Country music. Incorporating elements of Western Swing, Bakersfield, and Outlaw country spanning from the 1940’s – 1970’s. They have made many stages around New England their home, and are as comfortable at a dive bar as they are playing a festival (FreshGrass/Green River Fest) or opening for country legends (George Jones). Ryan Quinn (guitar/vocals) has a unique songwriting approach, matching lush & tender melodies with post-apocalyptic and at times self deprecating lyrics. Matt Silberstein (Bass) & Matt Jugenheimer (Drums) always lay down a solid backbeat. Sal Al (if you’re into brevity) just finished their 3rd album for RubWrongways Records entitled “Enjoy This While It Lasts”.
