    Default Sierra Hull at the Freight and Salvage 3/29/19

    I am trying to find info on the guitarist that played with Sierra last night. Can anyone help me out? Itís the guitarist in this photo. That was an incredible show. Holy moly those folks can play. If you ever get a chance to see Sierra live I would highly recommend it, but be prepared to be seriously humbled and awed. I am not sure Iíve ever witnessed a higher level of musicianship assembled together on one stage.

    I believe that is Mike Seal (no relation) but a great name! I saw him a while back with Jerry Douglas and he is incredible!

    That show was absolutely stunning! I've seen Sierra four times now, and each time, she is playing better and pushing the boundaries further. Just look at the instrumentation in that photo, and you'll see what I mean. After the show, a couple of my music buddies said that Sierra is at the top of her game. I don't think she is there yet, so hers is definitely a journey to tag along on.

    Although she mainly played material from her most recent album and her upcoming one, she also played the two bluegrass instrumentals from her first album, which last night, were high-level bebopgrass. She also gave the band a break while she did her version of Chris Thile's "Fiddle Tune Request Time," doing four tunes that the audience requested while slipping in some Bach and a song excerpt.

    This video from a week ago will give you a sense of the band and answer the question about her current guitar player:

    Yup - Mike Seal. That guy redefines what it means to have chops. Titanic totality of taste, technique and tone.

    Portland Symphony show today...should be an interesting departure, I assume. Looking forward to it!

    Today was my first time seeing Ms. Hall in person. Not only is she spectacularly talented but what courage to play with a symphony for the first time. Well done Sierra...

    She continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Spectacular.
