The 2016 IBMA Fiddler and Female Vocalist and the 2018 IBMA Banjo Player have combined their musical wit and whimsy with the aim to entertain you in a bluegrass duo sort of way!

Becky Buller has written songs for three Grammy award-winning albums by Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway; The Travelin’ McCourys; and the Infamous Stringdusters, as well as compositions for Bluegrass legends Rhonda Vincent, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, and many more.
