With chops so hot, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen were named IBMA’s 2016 Instrumental Group of the Year for the second time, with a third nomination in 2017. Their critically acclaimed album Cold Spell earned a 2015 GRAMMY nomination for Best Bluegrass Album of the Year, yet the accolades don’t end there. Solivan, with banjoist Mike Munford, 2013 IBMA Banjo Player of the Year, award-winning guitarist Chris Luquette and bassist Jeremy Middleton, simmer a progressive bluegrass stew of infinite instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills soon to be featured once again on their new album If You Can't Stand the Heat, slated to drop this Fall. Since leaving the cold climes of Alaska for the bluegrass hotbed of Washington, D.C., Frank Solivan has built a reputation as a monster mandolinist and become a major festival attraction with his band, Dirty Kitchen. Their respect and deep understanding of the tradition collides, live on stage, with jazz virtuosity creating an unforgettable, compelling performance.

Folkenphunk is an acoustic trio that stands the idea of a traditional bluegrass approach on its ear by incorporating funk, folk, rock, and psychedelic influences into its mix. First formed ...More
What Folkenphunk does superbly is making acoustic music for people who might not be hardcore bluegrass fans. The trio adapts and stylizes its material into an original and interesting hybrid sound. A typical set will combine songs from the Grateful Dead, Chuck Berry, Zak Brown, and the traditional Irish music songbook into a singular experience that leaves fans talking for days. The band is typically a three-piece affair but does augment its sound with additional musicians at times, including Vincent Pierce Smith on percussion and Russ Gottleib on banjo.

Che Apalache began as a bluegrass band, but eventually incorporated Latin American styles into their repetoir. Combining instrumental prowess with tight vocal harmonies, they have curated an authentic blend of genres to reflect the nature of their lives. Evoking images from Appalachia to the Andes, their affectionately titled debut album, “Latingrass” is testament to a powerful cultural and musical exchange.
In 2017 the band received grants from the North Carolina Humanities Council and the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities to tour the United States. Everywhere they went on their five-week ramble, they were met with enthusiasm and praise. At the prestigious Appalachian String Band Music Festival in Clifftop, WV they were awarded first place in the Neo-Traditional band competition. The momentum is growing for Che Apalache, and the future looks promising in both South and North America.

Jeremy Garrett is known as an innovative fiddle player, expressive singer and creative songwriter in the GRAMMY Award-winning band, The Infamous Stringdusters, who broke onto the national scene in 2007, scooping ...More
To fans of the Grammy-nominated “‘dusters,” he’s known as “G-Grass” or “Freedom Cobra” for his dynamic stage presence, but to his fellow artists and growing fan base, there’s another side, where songwriting and more intimate performances come to the fore. He has contributed several songs to the Stringdusters, including the title track for their 2014 album “Let It Go”, winning first place in the Folk category for the 2014 USA Songwriting Competition. His collaborations with other songwriters include Jon Weisberger, Josh Shilling, Becky Buller, Darrell Scott, John Pennell, and more.
Jeremy is a diverse entertainer performing in all-star line-ups and as a solo artist. Recently Jeremy has shifted his attention to a more intimate show highlighting his catalog of originally crafted songs accompanying him self on guitar, fiddle and mandolin. Jeremy likes to energize these intimate shows by weaving in hints of his fiddle science project, experimenting with electronic sound effects.
The Rumpke Mountain Boys combine signature vocals, a unique command of string instruments (acoustic guitar, mandolin, upright bass and banjo) and dynamic special effects into a singular musical experience. An ...More
Grateful Dead Hour host David Gans proclaimed, “One of the things I love about the Rumpke Mountain Boys is that there’s a fundamental honesty in their presentation. This is something they share with my other heroes, Donna the Buffalo and the Grateful Dead. They don’t make set lists ahead of time, they don’t rehearse their songs to a fare-thee-well-- they perform in real time. All four of them write, which is very important, and they draw songs from a tremendous variety of sources... being a musician is a life-long learning experience, if you’re doing it right, and they are.”
Like playing around a campfire, the Boys take turns calling the next tune, distilling shows from a sea of infinite notes created from years of jamming. Drawing upon a growing catalog of originals and and an ecclectic mix of covers, the Rumpke Mountain Boys blend music like a fine Irish whiskey-- the result affectionately dubbed Trashgrass. The Boys titled their 2012 album release with the same name, followed by their 2013 release, Moon, which was recorded at the famed Royal Studios in Memphis. 2016's High Time, Low Tide marks the release of their 4th self-produced album.
Chris Timbers is poised to rise to the top once again. His story resonates with many as he found success, experienced failure and is now focused and poised for the ...More
Chris has been writing music and performing for most of his life. When he began to pursue it professionally, Chris’ blues/roots sound led him to front and write music for the Virginia-based band, Less Traveled. They found success together producing an album, developing a following, and touring regionally. It wasn’t long before Chris’ talent was getting some pretty serious attention. With an endorsement from Godin Guitars and a spot opening for acts such as Agents of Good Roots, Merle Saunders and Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews and TR3), Chris decided to strike out as a solo artist and moved to New York, where he continued to work on his unique style and hone his technique. Chris became a favorite in the Brooklyn music scene, and sat in as a session guitarist on several indie records.
Shortly thereafter, Chris’ success came to a halt as he battled substance abuse, decided to become involved with a motorcycle “gang” and suffered the loss of his only sibling, James at a young age. Chris ended up in prison with lots of time to think, reflect and write.
Knowing it was time for change, Chris had to reinvent himself focusing on the positive but using past struggles to guide him toward a more positive life. Chris adopted Native American spirituality and poured his whole heart into his music, which gave him peace and focus. He spent hours practicing and giving private concerts to anyone who loved great music and needed to know there was hope. It all motivated him to “Keep Moving” which he later named his first solo album.
Chris returned to Virginia with a renewed sense purpose and direction. And with the help of bassist and friend, Mike Echols, Chris soon had a new line-up of performers to make music.
Together with Mike on bass and vocals, drummer Paul Dudley, percussionist and drummer Christopher Derry, Stephen Goodrick on lead guitar, and Joe Daniel on keyboards and vocals, Chris Timbers Band represents a style of music that’s hard to categorize. Chris calls his unique combination of country, contemporary jazz, blues, and rock “alternative soul.” You’ll hear hints of Stevie Ray Vaughn, the rhythm of blues, the lyrics of soul, the melodies of country, and some good old-fashioned rock ‘n roll.

As those who have seen him live can attest, Pierce Edens absorbed the songwriting, storytelling and musical styling of the surrounding Appalachian Mountains, whMore
Over the last ten years, Edens has been drawing on those roots and blending them with the grungy rock and roll sounds that took him in his teenage years. The result is a haunting and fiery mixture that is notoriously hard to pin down. Allmusic.com classifies Edens as both “Folk-Rock” and “psychedelic-grunge,” and No Depression writer Bill Kopp says “[He] could just as easily- and accurately- be tagged with the singer/songwriter label; He’s a gritty troubadour who takes what he needs from each style, blending and bending it to suit the needs of his songs.”
Through relentless touring, independently producing 4 albums (with one on the way), one full length concert film, and sharing the stage with musical heroes such as: Jim Lauderdale, Todd Snider, Will Kimbrough, and Sturgill Simpson, Edens has garnered a dedicated following of fans across the nation. And as Fred Mills of Blurt magazine says… “Edens is the R.F.D. (Real effin’ Deal), and when he and his band have their collective back against the wall, there’s trouble in store.”
