At just 11 years old, Sierra Hull performed with Alison Krauss, Grammy award-winning bluegrass-country singer and musician, on the Grand Ole Opry stage. At 26, Hull is coming to Bloomington. She will perform at 8 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. 

“I think she’s endless,” Krauss said of to the performer according to Hull’s website. “Talent like hers is so rare, and I don’t think it stops. It’s round.” 

Two years after her performance with Krauss, Hull signed with Rounder Records and gained attention as a renown mandolin player, vocalist and recording artist, according to her website. She also became the first bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship at the Berklee College of Music. 

Her latest album, “Weighted Minds,” was released in January 2016. According to her website, Hull wrote 11 of the album’s 12 songs.

“The moment you start to be yourself, there’s an honesty about that, that people connect with,” Hull said on her website. “This album feels like the story of my early twenties, of that searching. Now, it feels like everything worked out the way it was supposed to.” 

Tickets for the show start at $20. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m.
