The Barber’s Fiddle is a song that tells a story of bluegrass music being passed on throughout generations.

Becky wrote the song with Lynda Dawson, and there are 18 award-winning fiddlers featured on this track, including Shawn Camp, Jason Carter, Laurie Lewis, Kati Penn, and Sam Bush on vocals and fiddles, Michael Cleveland, Johnny Warren, Stuart Duncan, Deanie Richardson, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, Jason Barie, Fred Carpenter, Tyler Andal, Nate Lee, Dan Boner, Brian Christianson, Laura Orshaw and, of course, Becky.
Becky Buller is now a two-time Grammy award winner and an eight-time International Bluegrass Association Award-winning artist. She made history by being the first artist ever to win in both instrumental and vocal categories at the 2016 IBMA Awards, as well as being the first female to ever win IBMA’s Fiddle Player of the Year.
