Grammy-Nominated Bluegrass Music Comes to Germantown



The Grammy-nominated bluegrass group Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen will bring their Family, Friends and Heroes tour to BlackRock Center for the Arts on Sunday, May 1 at 4:00 pm.

Featuring music from their newly-released album, the Family, Friends and Heroes tour provides a generous glimpse into Solivan’s work that pays homage to his family members and features the pristine playing of his closest musical heroes, including Del McCoury, Rob Ickes, Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, John Cowan, Mike Bub, Shawn Camp and Megan McCormick.

Since Frank Solivan left the cold climes of Alaska for the bluegrass hotbed of Washington, DC, 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’ve been named Washington Area Music Association’s Best Bluegrass Band of the Year for four consecutive years. In 2015 the group received a Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Album.

Tickets to see Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen at BlackRock Center for the Arts are $18-$40 and are on sale in person, over the phone by calling 240.912.1058, or online at blackrockcenter.org.

UPCOMING PERFORMANCES AND EVENTS Dorrance Dance (Dance, Tap) - Saturday, May 14 at 8:00 pm. Tickets $18-44.

10,000 Maniacs (Alternative, Rock) - Friday, May 20 at 8:00 pm. SOLD OUT
