Though pictured here with a mandolin, Rebecca is known primarily as a guitarist, a role she filled for several years with young Colorado grassers Hit & Run. She is a notably strong player – both on rhythm and lead guitar – providing a powerful antidote to the “plays like a girl” stereotype.
When she and Hit & Run mandolinist John Frazier wed, moved to Nashville, and produced young Master Frazier, Rebecca moved into mom mode, where she obviously excels. A second child is expected in April 2011.
Coincidentally, John was filling in on mandolin in October 2009 with Steep Canyon Rangers (and Martin) while Mark Guiggino was with his wife as she gave birth.
Well done, Rebecca! Birthing the future of bluegrass music is important work.
