Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen: On The Edge

It's a surprise to some: Washington is home to a thriving bluegrass community, with bands that are getting attention beyond our region. Local bluegrass band Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen recently signed with an independent Nashville record label. They're also celebrating three "Wammie" awards and a new album. They join us to play some tunes from that album, "On the Edge."
