Local bluegrass celebrity Becky Buller will perform at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in December as part of The First Ladies of Bluegrass, an all-star band that includes Alison Brown (banjo), Buller (fiddle), Sierra Hull (mandolin), Missy Raines (bass) and Molly Tuttle (guitar), will take the stage at the CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, as part of the museum’s American Currents Concert Series.
The event will be at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 11 at the CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum; 224 5th Avenue South, Nashville, Tenn. 37203.
The show is in support of the museum’s exhibition, American Currents: The Music of 2018. The First Ladies of Bluegrass are featured in the exhibit, which carefully examines the noteworthy figures and events in country music’s recent past.
Each musician from the First Ladies of Bluegrass is the first woman to win the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) award for instrumentalist of the year in her respective category. The genesis of the group was a 2017 session for Raine’s album Royal Traveller, for which the five women assembled to record “Swept Away” as a tribute to the song’s writer, Laurie Lewis. Produced by Brown, “Swept Away” was named Recorded Event of the Year at the 2018 IBMA Awards.
