Sierra To Perform At The National Prayer Breakfast

National Prayer Breakfast Sierra will be performing with label mate Alison Krauss at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC on February 3.  The National Prayer Breakfast is a yearly event attended by President Obama and held on the first Thursday of February each year. The event is hosted by members of Congress and is attended by some 3,500 guests, including international invitees from over 100 countries.

Recently Rounder announced the release of her third album, Daybreak.  Due March 8, the album was produced by Union Station bassist Barry Bales and features 12 songs – 7 of which were written by Hull.  Mandolinist Chris Thile (Nickel Creek, Punch Brothers) had this to say about Daybreak; “Sierra’s extraordinary ear and innate musicality are well-evidenced by this, her second LP.  It’s a joy to hear her realizing her seemingly limitless potential.”

One of the most respected artists in the new school of bluegrass, Hull has received 5 IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) nominations in the past 3 years and is the first bluegrass musician to receive Berklee School of Music’s prestigious Presidential Scholarship.
