Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen w/ South Hill Banks

Frank
With chops so hot, Frank Solivan & 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 a new album coming 2018. 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. “The band packs dazzling solos into dizzyingly small spaces, funneling bluegrass’s love of dexterity into pop’s love of brevity.” – Grayson Haver Currin, Indy Week “On the aptly-titled Family, Friends & Heroes mandolinist Frank Solivan shows why one of the rising stars in bluegrass circles deserves a higher profile in the wider world of Americana.” – Don McLeese, No Depression “Shaken and stirred, Solivan’s gang of grassers amount to a not-so-secret recipe that’s full of home and heart.” – Tom Netherland, Herald Courier Read about a recent Dirty Kitchen Experience in the Washington Post article Everything’s Cooking South Hill Banks ***Floydfest 17 “On The Rise” Competition Winner*** South Hill Banks – Lance Thomas (vocals, guitar), Eric Horrocks (mandolin, vocals), Ryan Horrocks (banjo), Dan Fiasconaro (guitar, vocals), and Matt Eversole (upright bass) – have carved a niche for themselves with their genre-bending psychedelic bluegrass sound. Formed in August 2015 in Richmond, Virginia, South Hill Banks pulls from a wide range of influences such as Phish, Tony Rice, The Grateful Dead, Doc Watson, and Sam Bush to keep audiences entertained with a blend of sounds old and new. Since the release of their debut album, Riverside Dr., South Hill Banks have taken the east coast by storm, headlining a multitude of medium to large-sized venues and working aside national touring groups with a devoted and ever-growing fan base following every step of the way.

Town Mountain & Jon Stickley Trio

Town
Town Mountain Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain has earned raves for their hard-driving sound, their in-house songwriting and the honky-tonk edge that permeates their exhilarating live performances, whether in a packed club or at a sold-out festival. Jon Stickley Trio With roots in gypsy jazz, bluegrass, and hip-hop in an “exhilarating all-acoustic swirl” (Acoustic Guitar Magazine), Jon Stickley Trio combines Jon Stickley’s rapid-fire flatpicking guitar with the sultry and wild, yet refined, melodies of Lyndsay Pruett on violin set over the deep groove of Patrick Armitage on drums.
