Mandolin Mondays #203 w/ Special Guest Sierra Hull

Rate this Entry
3-time IBMA Mandolin Player of the Year and all around Mandolin Queen, Sierra Hull, makes a very special appearance on Mandolin Mondays this week with an original Celtic-inspired tune on her trusty Gibson axe.



Based in Nashville, TN, Sierra is a mandolinist who's name precedes herself. Starting at a very young age, she began making onstage appearances with such artists as Sam Bush, Alison Krauss & Union Station, and others. Since then she's become a powerful bandleader, and has recorded 3 seminal albums under her own name. Along the way, Sierra was awarded a Presidential Scholarship to attend the Berklee College of Music as one of their first American Roots program students. In addition to her many IBMA awards, Sierra's most recent record Weighted Mind was nominated for a Grammy.

    Yay Sierra finally featured on mandolin Mondays! Now I can die in peace.... jk.
    But seriously awesome picking! I want this tune to become the theme for a movie, but there's no movies that could qualify for this.

    What a National treasure!! I still go back on YouTube and watch that talented young lady playing Cluck Old Hen with Alison and the boys... The Mandolin world is in good hands going forward! Great song played with blazing speed and accuracy!

    Beautiful!! I feel like we should help Sierra come up with a name for this lovely song.

    BTW, once named would a tab be available?

    Hull's Victory is a name that come's to mind, however that name is already taken. I'd suggest the Marvelous Monday Jig as title.
    Sierra has great technique and style. And I always enjoy her performances.

    Great stuff, Sierra never disappoints! I remember my band having to go onstage after her band "Clay Hess" in summer of 07 at a fest in Western NY and while she was playing I was talking with Jack Lawrence about her playing. I said "boy that little girl can play" Jack-eyes got big "YES SHE CAN" She was pretty young at that time, heck still is.

    Awesome. Loved it!

    The part at 1:30-1:33 (harmonic & hammer-on) - very cool.
