Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, The Josh Daniel/Mark Schimick Project 

When: Thu., June 2, 6 p.m. 2016
Price: free



It should come as little surprise that Family, Friends & Heroes—the new album from D.C.-based bluegrass explorer Frank Solivan—opens with a blistering rendition of "Oh, Pretty Woman" before winding through takes on standards and hit singles alike. Surrounded by collaborators including Sam Bush and his own mother, the spirited mandolin player chases "Leaving on a Jet Plane" with "Wayfaring Stranger." With his hotshot quartet Dirty Kitchen, Solivan has consistently tested the dividing lines between bluegrass and newgrass. The band packs dazzling solos into dizzyingly small spaces, funneling bluegrass's love of dexterity into pop's love of brevity. There are occasional psychedelic flourishes and dips into smoldering ballads, but, at its best, Dirty Kitchen harnesses the most urgent aspects of the four-minute rock song format and bluegrass's technicality at once. It doesn't hurt that Solivan keeps Mike Munford, one of the sharpest banjo players in the business, and fresh-faced guitarist Chris Luquette for company. Josh Daniel and Mark Schimick open this excellent edition of American Tobacco's Back Porch Music on the Lawn. —Grayson Haver Currin
