34th Annual Four Corners States Bluegrass Festival
You can catch The Becky Buller Band on the road Nov. 13 thru 15 at the 34th Annual Four Corners States Bluegrass Festival in Wickenburg, Ariz. Becky is especially excited that she and band will be sharing the stage with the legendary Bluegrass Patriots from Fort Collins, Colo.
Third and lastly...
Becky was especially excited that lyric writer Guy Stevenson, along with fellow Blue Grass Boys Blake Williams and Michael Feagan, and producer Stephen Mougin were also on hand to accept the Recorded Event Award in Raleigh, N.C., Oct. 1st. We’ll leave you with a few photos and some of Becky’s words that night as she quoted Psalm 118: “’God has brought me to a spacious place’ and I’m so grateful.”
