ARCA Presents: The Becky Buller Band: 10-Time Bluegrass IBMA Award Winner

The Becky Buller Band


Grand Ole Opry multi-instrumentalist, fiddle-virtuoso, singer, songwriter and 10-time Bluegrass IBMA Award Winner BECKY BULLER and her virtuoso bluegrass BAND will entertain with powerful storytelling & lighthearted virtuosity in her Lincoln Hall on Sunday, June 2 at 7:00 PM - just two weeks after the premier of their latest album – JUBILEE.

Having written songs for three Grammy award-winning albums, Becky wrote all the songs and instrumentals on JUBILEE, with the exception of the title track, which she co-wrote with Grammy award winner, Aoife O’Donavan. Her most personal album to date, the song ‘Jubilee’ is about longing for physical, emotional, and spiritual rest, ironically written in 2020 before the world shut down. 

Her band helped her arrange all the music, which she says, “really gave us a chance to shine and push past the Bluegrass boundaries.” The band is Jacob Groopman on guitar, Wesley Lee on mandolin, Daniel Hardin on bass AND Ned Luberecki on banjo, who is a 2024 inductee into The American Banjo Museum’s Hall of Fame!

Adults $30, Members $25, Students $5   This will sell out, so reserve/buy early.  Buy online at or call 724-659-3153 to reserve and pay by cash or check at the door. ARCA is grateful for the generous donation of Board members Bob and Pat Beran, sponsoring the debut performance of the Becky Buller Band.

Before the concert, from 4 to 6 PM - as a perfect opener for an evening of Becky’s Buller’s award-winning lyrics and song writing – attend the poetry reading and opening reception of the Red Brick Gallery’s exhibit, EKPHRASIS: Writers Responding to Art – presenting the work of 15 writers responding to 15 visual artists from western Pennsylvania. There is no admission for the poetry reading and reception in the Red Brick Gallery, 17 Main Street, Foxburg.

One of the hottest bluegrass artists and fiddle players on the national touring circuit who is known for her boundless energy and enthusiasm for music of many styles, Becky Buller plays what she describes as “what the audience likes to hear” on the contemporary side of the bluegrass family tree.  Becky said, ”At its core, [bluegrass] is music by real people about real people. That’s evergreen, and it’s something that resonates with everybody from everywhere.”

Claiming that she has traversed the globe performing bluegrass music to underwrite her insatiable songwriting habit, Becky has written songs for three Grammy award-winning albums of The Infamous Stringdusters (2018), The Travelin’ McCourys (2019) and Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway (2023).

Becky Buller is the recipient of 10 IBMA awards, including the 2016 Fiddler and Female Vocalist of The Year. She is the first woman in the history of the awards to receive the Fiddler nod and the first person ever to win in both vocal and instrumental categories. Becky also moonlights with the First Ladies of Bluegrass, an all-female ensemble composed of the first women to win in their respective instrumental categories at the IBMA awards. In April 2023, Becky was inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame.

Other IBMA awards include the 2020 Collaborative Recording of the Year for “The Barber’s Fiddle”, the 2020 Song of the Year for co-writing and fiddling on Special Consensus’ “Chicago Barn Dance”, her 2016 Fiddler and Female Vocalist Awards, and the 2018 Best Gospel Recorded Performance for the song, Speakin’ To That Mountain.

Equally passionate about bluegrass music education, Becky has over 20 years of experience teaching fiddle, singing, and songwriting, both privately and at workshops and camps around the world. She currently serves on the board of the IBMA Foundation. Becky proudly calls Manchester, Tennessee, her adopted hometown, where she lives with husband, Jeff Haley, and daughter, Romy.
