    Had the pleasure of seeing Frank and his band in Raleigh at IBMA in the fall of 2013. Just an outstanding group of musicians. His guitarist can really pick. If you have a chance to see these guys, do it, you will not be disappointed.

    The last photo is flipped, or the title should read "right to left".

    Those kids can PLAY! Son! It's a good thing they don't play everything at lightning speed because I can't listen as fast as they CAN play.

    Had the pleasure to learn from Frank Solivan at last year's Mandolin Symposium. He is a true gift. Saw him again at the Palms in Winters, CA. These guys put on an awesome show and their musicianship is impeccable. Then last weekend my wife and I rented a movie called "Pride" and we noticed Frank's rendition of "Across the Great Divide" was used in the movie. It's nice to see him get the recognition and airplay he deserves.

    Frank, Danny,and the rest of Dirty Kitchen come by the shop regularly when they pass through Asheville. ALWAYS a good time- great musicians, yes; more importantly they are just great folks to spend time with. 'Gotta let him loose in my kitchen next time!

    After seeing these guys on Bluegrass Underground, they are my new favorite band edging out Del and the boys. Just now taking up mandolin because of Frank. I know I'll never come close to Frank's caliber, I'm too old, but am having a blast doing what I an do. Keep up the great work guys, you're stars!!!!!
