THE SIERRA HULL INTERVIEW
double click video for full screen
Sierra Hull made it to the Grand Ole Opry by the time she was 11 years old when Allison Krauss invited her to the stage. Two years later, she signed with Rounder Records, and soon became known as a remarkable mandolin player, a tone-true vocalist, and a recording artist of high order. She played the White House, and Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center, and she became the first bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship at the Berklee College of Music.
Sierra has won The IBMA Mandolin Player of The Year award in 2016, 2017 & 2018
Her newest album is Weighted Mind. Certainly nothing that you would have expected. A gem of a bluegrass progressive album.
“She plays the mandolin with a degree of refined elegance and freedom that few have achieved,” says Bela Fleck, the genre-leaping banjo master who produced Weighted Mind.
