Does that mean you hit the road for the summer? As for live shows etc, that is not the same thing. Probably because I'm still like a little kid in so many ways when I think of how much I love listening to my heroes play. It didn't sound like Mr. Mandolin Cafe: If you were asked to lend advice to one of those young musicians wanting to follow in your footsteps, what would that advice be? Dan Tyminski, Clay Hess, and Ron Block sang with me on most the songs, and I sang harmony vocals as well on a couple cuts. Does anybody up there know about your famous ancestor, Cordell Hull? I spend a lot of time playing both, however, and enjoy them equally in many ways. What about that little festival you ran in your home town? If I had to answer the question right now, I would say that my favorite 'modern' mandolin player is, hands-down, Sierra Hull. She is composing, and she is leading, and to have the chance to hear how she thinks which develops to doing so is most definitely a treat to anyone who loves their music.
And two are instrumentals that I wrote, and the other five are vocals. Everyone has been real supportive. I just kind of went with it. John Thanks for stepping in, John. From that perspective people shouldn't talk about themselves or their music at shows-they should just play.
Every so often, a talent comes along that makes us sit up and take notice. Ok, had said this once a bit better, and then the forum 'ate' it completely as tried to post. All in all, there are probably songs I like singing better and songs I enjoy playing better on this record for different reason, but the balance of the songs as a whole — I love them all. That time is now for Sierra Hull. I wish her further luck and the Lovell Sisters etc. And I have so many.
It didn't sound like Mr. What can you tell me about it? I had spent some time while I was in high school, I gave a few lessons, but it was mostly kids who wanted to learn to play guitar. Her mandolin playing is smooth, in time, and downright slippery. I just felt like, well, I really should just go out on a limb and do it anyway. To get things started, AcuTab's John Lawless leads Sierra through a discussion about how she came to be a stunning virtuoso at such a young age, including her early influences and inspirations.
But there is more Sierra Hull news to report, as it turns out. It's good if you want to adapt some of her ideas and techniques. I was amazed at how quickly we were able to make it. I feel like Secrets was made so long ago at this point. I didn't imagine I'd ever be someone that was asked to actually make one teaching my music, and I'm so honored to think that anyone would want to learn about anything I do as a mandolin player. From full-on newgrass instrumentals to eloquent, heart-stopping ballads to playful modern bluegrass, Secrets heralds the arrival of a fresh, important new voice onto today's bluegrass scene.

Assistant Tracking Engineer: Mike Teaney Overdubs engineered by Ron Block at Moonlight Canyon Studio, Franklin, Tennessee, and The Squirrel Nest, Nashville, Tennessee. I wanted it to be different than the last record, and I felt like so many of my favorite musicians were on Secrets, so it was very hard to figure out what was gonna work out this time around.
Then they contacted me a few months later saying they wanted to give me the Presidential award, which kind of sealed the deal. Sierra Hull: I would definitely say it would be most helpful to somebody who had some experience playing. They contacted me a few years ago about playing one, and at the time, I was really looking for a new instrument and decided to give it a try and loved it. Closing in on two years since the release of her highly acclaimed solo recording Secrets, she's nearing the completion of her first year at Boston's acclaimed Berklee College of Music, attending under a Presidential Scholarship, a grant established to bring the world's best young musicians to study at Berklee. I think it was nicely done, and for what it's worth, I like the interview in the beginning.
I originally had plans to do another record with Ron, and we were trying to figure out a time it would work. I had pretty much told myself that would be the only way I would definitely come. They first offered me a full scholarship, with full tuition, but I would have to pay living expenses, food, all that. But getting to work with Bryan, Randy, some of those guys, was really fun. That was the first time I had done that, which was interesting. I'm not intending to bash anyone.
