Tucson-based singer-songwriter Rebekah Rolland has been steeped in the sounds of bluegrass since childhood.

Her mother was a member of the “Up With People” ensemble. From there, she and her sister learned how to sing. Her father and grandfather were deeply involved in Arizona’s bluegrass scene, laying the foundation for Rebekah’s passion for the genre.

As an adult, she’s part of the band Run Boy Run and married her sweetheart and fellow bluegrass musician Matt Rolland.

Rebekah joined The Show last year to discuss her artist-in-residence project for the National Park Service. Now she and her husband are back with their own Tiny Desert Concert.

Earlier this year, before COVID, The Show spoke with Rebekah for more about her music.
