Acclaimed Singer-Songwriter-Mandolinist Sierra Hull To Perform First Night Boston Concert, Broadcast On WUMP-FM

Published: 2013-12-19
First Night Boston, Berklee College of Music, and UMass Boston’s radio station, WUMB-FM 91.9 present bluegrass vocalist, mandolinist and songwriter Sierra Hull, a 2011 Berklee graduate, performing at the Berklee Performance Center on New Year's Eve, Tuesday, December 31, 2013. The concert is a centerpiece of this year's First Night Boston festival, and will be broadcast live on WUMB-FM, and webcast worldwide on wumb.org, live from Berklee.

Admission is $10 by purchase of a First Night button. Sierra Hull performs at 6:45 p.m. (WUMB broadcast, and wumb.org, at 7:00 Eastern). The Berklee Performance Center is located at 136 Massachusetts Ave., Boston, MA. Please call 617-747-2261 for more information.

Boundaries—age, genre or otherwise—don’t hamper an artist like Sierra Hull. As a player, a singer and a songwriter, Sierra has remarkable range, the potential to win over ears unfamiliar with Bill Monroe and give performances of broad cultural importance, as she’s done at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the National Prayer Breakfast. In May 2011, Sierra completed a two-year degree at Berklee College of Music in Boston on a full, Presidential Scholarship. Matt Glaser—head of Berklee’s American Roots Music Program—put it this way: “She has no limitations as a musician.”

Sierra’s second CD, Daybreak, was released in March 2011 on Rounder Records and the second video for the album for the title track, “Daybreak,” has been featured on CMT (Country Music Television). The video was directed by award winning director David McClister (Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Leann Rimes) and can be viewed here: http://www.cmt.com/videos/sierra-hull/693134/daybreak.jhtml

New Year's Eve 2013 marks the third consecutive year that First Night Boston, WUMB-FM, and Berklee have collaborated on a live folk/roots concert broadcast.
