Sierra Hull Mandolin Prodigy

sierrahull-largeSierra Hull. Talented 22 year old mandolin artist.

I was rattling off the names of a few mandolin virtuosos for a young mandolin student to watch and listen to when it hit me!  Wow, I was naming players of my generation or even older.  She added the name Sierra Hull, and happy that I was familiar with her, I agreed and told her to add that name to the list!

To my credit I mentioned Chris Thile, but at 33 years of age Chris is no longer the wunderkind in the mandolin world.

  1. I love watching pros try to one up each other. Is it me or does Sierra seem to have a bit more of a country twang sound when she plays?

    1. I do hear a lot of differences in the individual playing. Sierra has a relax approach but just as technically proficient on the mandolin as the others. Of course tone is a big factor which again is most likely technique than the build of the instrument.
