Rebecca Frazier with Hit & Run
Hot pickin’ bluegrass

Nashville-based, Hit & Run, fronted by Rebecca and John Frazier, formed in Boulder in 2001 with the desire to play “authentic yet modern” bluegrass.  Their appeal comes from their youthful energy combined with polished vocals, hot picking and their contemporary sound.
