Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen

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.

Eric Lee & Co.

A Pennsylvania-born songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Eric Lee shapes songs with stand-alone melodies and rich musical backdrops. From the personal to the sublime, they range from tales of honkey-tonk heartache, to anthems of social consciousness, and are told with a language of poetic and raw honesty. Lee draws from a well of uncommon musical depth, having worked professionally in recording studios, festival stages, and on the road with acclaimed artists in both folk and bluegrass (The Kennedys, Eric Andersen, Peter Rowan, Man About a Horse) since his late teens, and he commands the stage with the seasoned ease of a veteran performer. Following a self-titled EP, his new album "Heartache Town" defies conventional genre placement, and feature guest vocalist Tracy Grammer and mandolinist Jesse Brock.
