Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
The Christmas 45, VolumeToday marks the release of “The Christmas 45, Volume 1,” the latest offering from Becky Buller. Straight from her three IBMA awards (Emerging Artist, Songwriter, Recorded Event), she brings new music from her pen, her voice, and her fiddle. To pay homage to “45’s” from the days of yore, a virtual “A side” (The Savior is Born) and “B side” (Our Gingerbread House) make up this two song collection.

If you're a fan of acoustic music, particularly bluegrass, and you haven't heard of fiddler Becky Buller, there's a good chance you've heard some of her songs. Becky's compositions have been recorded by Ricky Skaggs (“Music To My Ears”), Rhonda Vincent ("Fishers of Men"), Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver ("Be Living"), Josh Williams ("You Love Me Today"), and Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out ("My Angeline" and "Rest My Weary Feet.").

Becky grew up in a very musical southern Minnesota family. The Bullers had a band called Prairie Grass with Gordy and Roxy Shultz for many years. Becky studied classical violin with both Patti Tryhus and Charles Gray and was in the Mankato Area Youth Symphony and even the Minnesota All-State Orchestra throughout high school. But her heart was always that of a fiddler.

After graduating in 2001 with a public relations degree from East Tennessee State University (ETSU) where she took part in their Bluegrass, Old-Time and Country Music program, Becky hit the road to fiddle for Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike. Becky spent ten years touring internationally, writing for, and recording with the group, producing several of Val's most recent records. In 2011, she decided to pursue a performing career of her own.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
