Podcast 391: Sierra Hull

On this week’s podcast, we’re talking to acclaimed mandolin virtuoso Sierra Hull!

Hull was recently on tour with Cory Wong. This interview was conducted in person at the Fretboard Journal before her November 10, 2022 concert at Seattle’s Moore Theater.

We chat about how she and Cory connected, her approach to playing mandolin in a largely electric setting, her current gear (including her pickups), and about the recent composition she penned for the 2022 FreshGrass Festival. Plus a lot more…

During Sierra’s visit, she performed a solo version of “Over the Mountain” for our cameras.
