article imageReview: Becky Buller fantastic on new album 'Tween Earth and Sky' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Aug 15, 2015 in Music
Bluegrass darling Becky Buller has released her latest album "Tween Earth and Sky," and it is a beautiful collection of musical work, both vocally and instrumentally.
Buller's CD opens with the upbeat and fun "Nothin' to You" and it breaks into "Home," which is a collaboration with The Sam Bush Band. "I Prayed for You" features strong male harmony vocals, while "For a Lifetime" is a slow-moving ballad, where Tim O'Brien lends his velvet vocals that blends well with Becky's lilting voice.
The up-tempo "Southern Flavor" is a solid duet with Peter Rowan of The Blue Grass Boys. One of the best tracks on the album is "Queen of the Mountain Bootleggers," which features Dale Ann Bradley's mellifluous voice, coupled with Buller's exquisite fiddle playing.
Buller does a superb job on the a cappella gospel tune "I Serve a God (Who Can Raise the Dead)," where she is joined with Darin and Brooke Aldridge and Gene McDonald. "American Corner" showcases her prowess on fiddle and Sam Bush on mandolin.
"Amos & Sarah" is a soothing ballad, while "Didn't Die" is quite haunting, and it features banjo accompaniment. Her album closes with "Thank You," where she expresses her gratitude to the Lord, and the ethereal "Make Us to Shine."
The Verdict
Overall, Becky Buller's newest album Tween Earth and Sky is a musical gem. It is eclectic and a substantial indication that all seven of her nominations for this year's upcoming International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) awards were based on sheer talent. It is a must for any bluegrass fan. This CD garners an A rating.
