2014 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards
Nominees for

Instrumental Group of The YearMale Vocalist of The Year
Banjo Player of The Year
Mandolin Player of The Year

Since 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. Solivan and banjoist Mike Munford (2013 IBMA Banjo Player of the Year), guitarist Chris Luquette (IBMA Instrumentalist of the Year Momentum Award winner) and doghouse bassist Dan Booth simmer a bluegrass/newgrass stew from instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills so hot, they also earned 2012 and 2013 Best Bluegrass Band honors from the Washington Area Music Association. It flavors every note of their new album, On the Edge, which Engine 145 dubbed, “a fine sophomore release from one of the most exciting bands in bluegrass today.”

There’s just something about Ellis.

Ellis has one of most engaging personalities that I've ever witnessed on a stage. Within seconds, [you'll fall] in love with her bubbling attitude for life, and her captivating laugh has been echoing in my heart all week!" — Ron Olesko,WFDU Public Radio

She is at once funny and wise, thoughtful and uninhibited,and her captivating voice is matched by her uplifting lyrics. After her recent appearance on A Prairie Home Companion, Ellis’ music charted in the Folk Top 100 in iTunes and Folk Top 20 onAmazon.com. She also received hundreds of messages from strangers including, "you exude purejoy", "I heard you and fell in love" and “I was stopped in my tracks by your music and captivatinglaugh” as well as "Yours is a voice we all need to hear.”

Ellis’ performances are transformational;she leaves her audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges & opened hearts.A winner of several awards and honors, Ellis has been recognized both for her songwriting skills as well as her engaging performances. Many folk festivals have “audience choice” awards, and Ellis has claimed those honors at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Moab Folk Festival, and Sisters Folk Festival. She also won the Midwest Mountain Stage New Song Contest (US) in 2011 and the award for the Just Plain Folks (International) Best Female Singer Songwriter Album in 2009.

Honor Finnegan is the Susan Boyle of quirky indie folk, only hotter. Her songs are humorous then heartbreaking with melodies that soar. Based in New York City, she has been making a splash in the northeastern regional folk scene with her original songs and ukulele playing. Combining elements of musical theatre, comedy, traditional folk, and poetry, Honor is cooler than the other side of the pillow.

Clouds that forever stampede the endless sky, shadows gliding over canyon walls– the West is a vast expanse of magic and mystery.  American artists from John Ford to Frederick Remington to A.B. Guthrie have used film, canvas and the printed page to convey the essence of its unique landscape and mythology.

“Reads like a love letter to the American West…..brims with pure plucky-folk
that the likes of The Civil Wars, The Lumineers, and even Norah Jones are bringing to the forefront of popular music….a sad reminder of simpler times that most modern Americans will never experience nor appreciate…..one part Springsteen and one part Dylan, but with pure charisma that is all Berger.

Inspired by Marc’s lifelong love affair with the American West and produced by Marc and Mike Ricciardi, RIDE now presents ten cinematic recordings capturing the vastness and romance of the West while exploring its deep roots in the American psyche.  From the haunting message and beat of “Twister” and the soul-shaking challenge of taming a wild horse in “Take it on the Chin”, to the sexy, mind-blowing, middle-of-nowhere encounter of “Time Waits For No Man” and on through seven more scenic stops, RIDE takes you on a dusty tour of the Great American Frontier.
