Born in southern Minnesota, Becky Buller grew up in St. James. Her childhood was immersed in music as she traveled southern Minnesota and northern Iowa with her parents Emory and Linda and the Prairie Grass Band. Buller began studying violin at the Mankato Suzuki School at the age of 10 and was soon involved in the Mankato Area Youth Symphony. By 1996 she was named to the Minnesota All-State Orchestra and crowned Minnesota Junior Fiddling Champion in Cotton, Minnesota, the same year. An award winning song writer, Buller’s songs have been covered by numerous Bluegrass and gospel artists.
