Next on Jubilee from the International Newgrass Festival: Sierra Hull & Highway 111

For Release: 2012-09-11 11:57:00

Rising mandolin star Sierra Hull and her band Highway 111 perform on the next edition of Jubilee, recorded live at the third-annual International Newgrass Festival in Bowling Green, KY. The program premieres Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 8/7 p.m. CT on KET and Saturday, Oct. 6 at 11/10 p.m. CT on KET2.

In her Jubilee performance, Hull shows why she’s considered one of the top young mandolin players in bluegrass today. She calls her mandolin performances “playing with a point to prove,” and her singing as “doing the songs justice.”

When Hull, native of Byrdstown, Tenn., was 11 years old, bluegrass legend Alison Krauss called her with an invitation to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. At the age of 13, Hull was signed to Rounder Records, and she released her debut album, Secrets, just three years later at the age of 16.

Members of Sierra Hull & Highway 111 include: Hull on vocals/mandolin/guitar; Jacob Eller on upright bass; Zach Gilmer on banjo/guitar/vocals; Clay Hess on guitar; and Christian Ward on fiddle.

Jubilee is a KET production. Nick Helton is the producer/director and Teresa Day is the executive producer.

More information about Jubilee, including streaming video, is available at ket.org/jubilee. More information about KET programming and education services, as well as how to support KET, can be found at ket.org.
