Jubilee To Be Released By Becky Buller and Aoife O’Donovan

Just prior to the 2020 shutdown, 10-time IBMA award winning fiddler, singer and songwriter Becky Buller and Grammy winning singer and songwriter Aoife O’Donovan collaborated to create this air of wistful longing for mental, emotional and spiritual rest. Jubilee fell into the dark dearth of the pandemic years, laying dormant until the FreshGrass Foundation commissioned Becky to write a performance piece for debut at their 2023 Bentonville, AR, festival. This song is the seed that bloomed into an entire song cycle of the same name, which chronicles Becky’s lifelong struggle with acute depression and anxiety.

The album Jubilee. is set for a May 2024 release from Dark Shadow Recording.

Jubilee, Becky BullerThis single, along with the entire project, was recorded in a day and a half, live, in one room save harmony vocals. By tracking in this classical style, the song cycle was allowed to exist in its natural form, each player reliant on one another with no safety net.

Jubilee gives Becky’s exquisite band a chance to showcase the full breadth of their talent, delivering a Bluegrass sonic footprint, while pushing beyond boundaries.

Musicians on the new album include: Becky Buller on vocals and fiddle, Aoife O’Donovan on vocals, Jacob Groopman on guitar, Daniel Hardin on bass, Wes Lee on mandolin and Ned Luberecki on banjo.

The album was produced and mixed by Stephen Mougin for Dark Shadow Recording and recorded at Studio 9, North Adams, MA. It was engineered by Dave Sinko and mastered by David Glasser for Airshow Mastering, Boulder, CO.
