      Great! Wish it lasted more than an hour. I enjoyed listening to them play and hearing about their personal styles, techniques, and preferences. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Sierra:

Boundaries—age, genre or otherwise—don't hamper an artist like Sierra Hull. At 23, she's already earned considerable respect in the bluegrass world, as a singer, songwriter and mandolin player. If fact, the IBMA's voting members have nominated her for the Mandolin Player of the Year award alone for the past 7 years - and there's a good chance she will be the first woman ever to win that award. Her music has taken her all around the world from Japan to Jerusalem to some of the most prestigious venues in the U.S. including The Grand Ole Opry, Carnegie Hall and The White House.

She's the first bluegrass musician to ever receive Berklee College of Music's acclaimed Presidential Scholarship. Sierra graduated Berklee with a specialized Artist Diploma in 2011 - a program few students have been selected for. Matt Glaser—head of Berklee's American Roots Music Program—put it this way: "She has no limitations as a musician."

In 2015, Sierra will release her third and long anticipated album, produced by Grammy Award winning banjoist, Béla Fleck for Rounder Records.

Mike:

Mike Compton is known as the Monroe-style mandolin player and has played with John Hartford and the Nashville Bluegrass Band. Mike received Grammy awards for his work on O Brother Where Art Thou and played on projects for Dr. Ralph Stanley and Elvis Costello. He has also garnered many International Bluegrass Music Awards and nominations including Album Of The Year, Recorded Performance Of The Year, and several nominations for Mandolin Player Of The Year. You can find him playing across the country with the Nashville Bluegrass Band, the Helen Highwater Stringband (with David Grier, Shad Cob, Missy Raines), or as a solo act.

Mike also hosts the Monroe Mandolin Camp featuring five days of wonderful Monroe-style mandolin lesssons, jams, and concerts. This year's camp will be held September 9th-13th in Kingston Springs, TN.

Casey:

Casey Campbell is a Nashville native bringing a fresh perspective to the traditional mandolin style. Born and raised in the sounds of Bluegrass; his first steps were taken backstage at the Grand Ole Opry in Bill Monroe's dressing room. He graduated from Belmont University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Music Business in May of 2014. Over the past year, Casey has been recording and playing with the Vickie Vaughn Band, Bryan Sutton Band, Becky Buller, Jim Lauderdale, Mac Wiseman, Shawn Camp, and more.
