About our headliner
Rebecca Frazier achieved notoriety in the bluegrass world as the first woman ever to appear on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. But it is her vocal prowess and song writing chops that make her one of the most exciting new artists to emerge on the national bluegrass stage. WHEN WE FALL is her long awaited solo debut and it is already garnering praise from bluegrass fans and critics in the know. Accompanying Frasier on the album of original songs and tunes are some of the finest players in bluegrass including Barry Bales – bass (Alison Krauss and Union Station), Scott Vestal – banjo (Sam Bush), Ron Block – banjo (Alison Krauss and Union Station), John Frasier – mandolin (John Cowan, Jim Lauderdale) and more. The album places Frazier right in the line behind the bluegrass women that preceeded her—the driving track “Ain’t Gonna Work Tomorrow” is reminiscent of the early recordings of Alison Krauss while instrumentals such as “Virginia Coastline” and “Clifftop” give a tip of the hat to guitar legends Tony Rice and the late jazz guitarist Emily Remler, about whom Frasier wrote her Honors Senior Thesis at the University of Michigan. Taken as a whole, Frazier is a triple threat and her multi faceted musicianship is sure to place her at the top of the crop of up and coming leading ladies in bluegrass.
