Balsam Range, from the mountains of Western North Carolina, has emerged in the past two or three years as one of the hottest bands on the bluegrass circuit. Their combination of driving musicality and wonderful song writing and selection has positioned them for years of excellence and recognition. If you haven't seen this band, you're in for a treat.
Sierra Hull, only in her early twenties, has been prominent for her virtuoso mandolin play since she was thirteen or fourteen years old. She attended Berklee College of Music in Boston for two years on a presidential scholarship while continuing to tour. Her time there was well-spent as it contributed to her vast expansion as a musician. She has a sweet voice to accompany her extraordinary instrumental work. Her band includes some of the best young musicians around.
