Sierra Hull - Weighted Mind Intervew

Two years ago (January 21) Michael Eck's interview with Sierra Hull was published. A fascinating look at a time she was about to break new territory: a Grammy nomination, two successive IBMA Mandolin Player of the Year Awards and a tour schedule that's nearly nonstop. Still a great read: Sierra Hull - Weighted Mind Interview.

Sierra Hull - Weighted Mind Interview

Help a rare Stanley Brothers recording not heard for 60+ years get preserved.

A great organization: The Handsome Ladies, support for women bluegrassers of all levels.

March Mandolin Festival. Marla Fibish, David Surette, Will Patton, Matt Shipman and more.

Arguably the finest mandolin recording ever: Homer & Jethro's Playing It Straight / It Ain't Necessarily Square.

Possibly all the chords you'll ever need: The Mandolin Cafe 21-Chord Coffee Mug.

That's the kind of guitar we dig: 1939 Martin D-18 courtesy Carter Vintage.

Long time friend of the Mandolin Cafe, performer, educator and author Marilynn Mair is Mandolin Mondays #107.
