ABOTMA and MountainGrass have announced that the 2016 IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year winners Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen are the headline act for MountainGrass 2017.

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.

Frank 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 have been named IBMA’s Instrumental Group of the Year twice, in 2014 and 2016.

Prepare to be delighted and wowed by their sweet blend of traditional bluegrass and outstanding musicianship with a contemporary twist.

Tickets are now on sale through iWannaticket.

Make sure you get your ABOTMA membership discount code before you purchase your tickets.
