KDRT broadcasters Bill Wagman and Peter Schiffman, collectively known as the Folk Brothers, will host Washington D.C. bluegrass band Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen on Live DiRT at the KDRT studio.
Frank Solivan has built a reputation as a monster mandolinist and fiery fiddler and his original music has climbed to the tops of the bluegrass charts coast to coast. His band, banjoist Mike Munford, guitarist Chris Luquette and bassist Jeremy Middleton, have been named International Bluegrass Music Association Instrumental Group of the Year in 2014 and 2016. Their latest album, “Family, Friends and Heroes”, is a genre-stretching album that provides a generous glimpse into Solivan’s work, paying homage to his family members and featuring the picking of his closest musical heroes, including Del McCoury, Rob Ickes, Jerry Douglas, and Sam Bush.
Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen play at the Palms Playhouse in Winters, Friday March 3rd at 8pm. Their latest release is “Family, Friends and Heroes” on Compass Records
