Becky Buller Chosen
To Make Bluegrass History
Becky Buller was chosen by the voting members of the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) to make history on Thurs., Sept. 29th when they named her the 2016 Fiddler of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year.
"I'm honored, I'm grateful and completely stunned!" she gasped to a packed house at the Duke Energy Center in Raleigh, N.C.
Becky is the first individual to ever receive both an instrumental and vocal award from the IBMA. She is also the first woman and only the sixth person to receive the coveted Fiddler of the Year nod in the awards' 27-year span.
Other members of the Becky Buller Band team were honored during the 2016 IBMA World of Bluegrass conference Sept. 27-29:
