Becky Buller is a multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter from St. James, MN, who has traversed the globe performing bluegrass music to underwrite her insatiable songwriting habit.  

Becky has written songs for three Grammy award-winning albums: she co-wrote “Freedom,” the lead-off track of The Infamous Stringdusters’ Laws of Gravity (2018 Best Bluegrass Grammy); “The Shaker” on The Travelin’ McCourys self-titled release (2019 Best Bluegrass Grammy) and “Good-bye Girl” on Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway’s Crooked Tree album (2023 Best Bluegrass Grammy). Becky’s compositions can also be heard on records by Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent and Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and many others.

Becky is the recipient of 10 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) awards, including the 2016 Fiddler and Female Vocalist.  She is the first woman in the history of the awards to receive the Fiddler nod; she is also the first person ever to win in both vocal and instrumental categories.  Her other awards include the 2020 Collaborative Recording for “The Barber’s Fiddle” and the 2020 Song for co-writing and fiddling on Special Consensus’ “Chicago Barn Dance.” 

She has made multiple guest appearances on WSM’s Grand Ole Opry and tours extensively with the Becky Buller Band.  Distance And Time, her third album for the Dark Shadow Recording label, was a nominee for the 2021 IBMA Album award.  Jubilee, Becky’s most personal album to date, will be released on May 17, 2024.

In April 2023, Becky was inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall Of Fame. 

Becky moonlights with the First Ladies Of Bluegrass, an all-female super group composed of the first women to win in their respective instrumental categories at the IBMA awards:  Alison Brown (banjo), Missy Raines (bass),  Sierra Hull (mandolin), Becky (fiddle), and Molly Tuttle (guitar).

Equally passionate about bluegrass music education, Becky has over 20 years experience teaching fiddle, singing, and songwriting, both privately and at workshops and camps around the world. 

Becky currently serves on the board of the IBMA Foundation, which awards $50,000 annually in scholarships and grants to spread the word about bluegrass music and support those who create it.  She is also on the board of the East Tennessee State University Alumni Association.
