"I’ll...eagerly wait for Frank Solivan’s new CD later this year. The taste I had at Saturday’s show left me wanting more...Here’s what I’d suggest. Listen, when it’s out, to Mike Munford’s fantastic instrumental, Crack of Noon. To me, it’s proof that Solivan, Munford, Chris Luquette and Jeremy Middleton are the best instrumental unit in bluegrass these days." – David Morris, Bluegrass Today

Billy Cardine and Mary Lucey (Acoustic Syndicate and The Biscuit Burners) have teamed up with Shelby Means (Della Mae) and Joel Timmons (Sol Driven Train) to create the powerhouse band, Lovers Leap. At the heart of Lovers Leap is a lovely balance of lush harmonies and provocative solos, intertwined in songs that span from old mountain murder ballads to original tunes set to worldly rhythms.

With their latest release Cold Spell landing a 2015 GRAMMY Nomination for Best Bluegrass Album followed by an eight award sweep at the 2015 WAMMIES, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, IBMA’s 2014 Instrumental Group of the Year, can’t slow down!

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 doghouse bassist Dan Booth, 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.

"With Cold Spell, Solivan, Munford, Booth, and Luquette are poised to become a lasting force in the bluegrass community, and also exhibit strong potential to cross over into even broader success." – Ed Whitelock, PopMatters

"If Tim O’Brien and Alison Brown ever had a love child, it might just be Frank Solivan. This newgrass/bluegrass foursome spirals through skin-tight banjo picking, razor-sharp mandolin and jazz-tinged concentric circles – all with a degree of control that balances technical precision and improvisational virtuosity." - Siobhan Long, Irish Times more >>>
