Sierra Hull is an American bluegrass singer, mandolinist and guitarist. Sierra was born and raised in Byrdstown, Tennessee and after high school accepted a Presidential Scholarship to study at the Berklee College of Music, the first ever offered in the Bluegrass genre.
Hull began playing the mandolin at the age of eight and was soon playing jam sessions with other musicians and entering local talent contests. At age 11 she was mentored and befriended by Alison Krauss, herself once a child prodigy on the fiddle. She's already earned considerable respect in the bluegrass world, the IBMA's voting members having nominated her for no fewer than five awards over three years-there's a good chance she'll be the first woman to win the mandolin category. But as a player, a singer and a songwriter, she also has remarkable range, with great potential to win over unfamiliar ears.
