It’s a special night for bluegrass fans on November 3 when Sierra Hull and Noam Pikelny with Stuart Duncan take the stage. Hull has been recognized from age 11 as a virtuoso mandolin-player. She’s received five International Bluegrass Music Association nominations and the Bluegrass Star Award, presented by the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation, bestowed upon bluegrass artists who do an exemplary job of advancing traditional bluegrass music and bringing it to new audiences while preserving its character and heritage. Pikelny has emerged as the preeminent banjoist of his generation. He is a founding member of the Grammy-winning Punch Brothers and was awarded the first annual Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass in 2010 in addition to the IBMA’s Banjo Player of the year in 2014 and 2017. Duncan could easily be called America’s favorite fiddler. He has chalked up a career that includes four Grammys, a slew of Academy of Country Music Awards, and nine titles as the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Fiddle Player of the Year.
