Description

Sisters Folk Festival is pleased to host Sierra Hull on Thursday, April 9 at the beautiful Sisters High School auditorium!

Sierra Hull


Stellar mandolin player Sierra Hull will perform with a full band, demonstrating her wide ranging and exceptional musical talent as a writer, singer and performer. Sierra Hull’s positively stellar career started early. She had her Grand Ole Opry debut at age 10, and was called back to the famed stage a year later to perform with her hero and mentor, Alison Krauss. Sierra played Carnegie Hall at 12; at 13 she signed with Rounder Records and issued her debut, Secrets, garnering the first of many nominations for the IBMA’s Mandolin Player of the Year designation. She played the Kennedy Center at 16 and the next year became the first bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship to the Berklee College of Music. As a 20-year-old, Hull played the White House and in 2010, captured her first IBMA award for Recorded Event of the Year. All the while, she was shedding the prodigy tag, turning virtuoso, and recording her second album, Daybreak, with seven of her own original compositions.

By 2016, Hull had reached a more mature place in her life and in her art. She tapped legendary bluegrass musician Béla Fleck to produce her third album, Weighted Mind. A departure from her opening pair of records that blended progressive elements with traditional structure, Hull let go of whatever preconceptions existed -- both hers and those of her audience -- and birthed a Grammy-nominated masterpiece. Enlisting bassist Ethan Jodziewicz (and Fleck on two cuts), and harnessing vocal contributions from Krauss, Abigail Washburn, and Rhiannon Giddens, Hull trusted her foundation of influences to support this artistic leap. Months later she was taking home the IBMA Mandolin Player of the Year award. After a near-decade of consecutive nominations, Hull broke that last glass ceiling, becoming the first woman to win the prestigious title, then she took home a pair to join it, winning again in 2017 and 2018.

Sierra Hull has maintained a rigorous touring schedule, as well. Even when off the road, she is frequently guesting with friends and legends, joining such icons as the Indigo Girls, Garth Brooks, and Gillian Welch, and performing at the Country Music Awards with Skaggs, Brad Paisley, and Marty Stuart. She says she’s ready now for something new. Currently in the midst of work for the follow-up to Weighted Mind, her next album will consist of all original songs. Beyond that, there are compelling ideas she won’t divulge for collaborations and, perhaps, an all-instrumental record. There is a plan, but not a timetable, which is just fine. “I love playing music. It’s all I ever wanted to do. I don’t see it, necessarily, as a bad thing that I’m slow on making albums. I want my albums to be something I can be proud of,” says Hull.
