SIERRA HULL AT FESTIVAL 2018
The Annie Moses Summer Music Festival was pleased to welcome mandolin virtuoso Sierra Hull! Leading a Masterclass of our best and brightest mandolin players, Sierra shared her heart for music and individuality that it brings.
A sensation from the age of 11, Sierra has played the White House, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center, and she became the first bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship at the Berklee College of Music.
“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 her latest album Weighted Mind. “And now her vocals and songwriting have matured to the level of her virtuosity.”
Alison Krauss says of Hull, “I think she’s endless. I don’t see any boundaries. Talent like hers is so rare, and I don’t think it stops. It’s round.”
