Sierra Hull, Needham Bank Great Hall Concert Series 2013-14
The evidence of Sierra Hull's uncommon maturitymusical and personalhas been there all along, and has won her formidable fans: by age 11, Alison Krauss had called with an invitation to the Grand Ole Opry stage; by 12, Rounder Records was expressing interest; and her studio bands have featured the cream of the contemporary bluegrass crop. Then there's the fact that Berklee College gave her the school's most prestigious award, the Presidential Scholarship, a first for a bluegrass musician; her choice to accept it, to delay her dream of hitting the road full-time after high school in favor of expanding her musical worldview, was hardly a light one. She's already earned considerable respect in the bluegrass world -- the International Bluegrass Music Association's voting members having nominated her for no fewer than five awards over three years, and there's a good chance she'll be the first woman ever to win the mandolin category.
