Becky Buller (from the album Crepe Paper Heart available on Dark Shadows Recordings)
Becky Buller entered the studio with instrumental friends for the recording of her recent release, Crepe Paper Heart. On the album, Becky played a Becky Buller model DP Hopkins clawhammer banjo as well as featuring work from longtime associates Leopold, her German violin from an unnamed maker (circa 1800) dubbed ‘the old man’, and Walt, an octave violin that was her Grandpa Buller’s fiddle. Other friends found their own way into the studio, Crepe Paper Heart welcoming Frank Solivan (“Bitter Springs to Big Trees”), The Fairfield Four (“Written in the Back of the Book”), Rhonda Vincent (“Calamity Jane”), Sam Bush (“The Rebel and the Rose”), Rob Ickes, and a stellar cast of other players.
The IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) took notice of Becky Buller, awarding her the 2015 trophy for Songwriter of the Year, and in 2016 handed over two awards for Female Vocalist of the Year and Fiddle Player of the Year. Claire Lynch joins Becky in harmony for “She Loved Sunflowers”. The Becky Buller Band back cuts on Crepe Paper Heart, coming together musically for the instrumental “Cair Paravel” and percolating underneath the story of “John D. Champion” as Becky Buller opens the album on the fast track with “Another Love Gone Wrong” and seeks strength “Speakin’ to That Mountain”.
