Mandolin maestra Sierra Hull has announced a special string of dates in December with a holiday theme. Billed as the Christmas Time Is Here tour, it will include four stops in the central and southeastern US that will also involve encouragement to share with the less fortunate over Christmas time.
Sierra is partnering with Toys For Tots and several regional food banks to collect unwrapped toys, canned food items, and cash at each of the shows, and offering free signed tour poster to everyone who brings gifts or food to the show, while supplies last.
Scheduled dates include:
- 12/7 — Sheldon Concert Hall, St. Louis, MO (Toys for Tots, canned food, and monetary donations accepted for St. Louis Area Foodbank)
- 12/8 — Franklin Theatre, Franklin, TN (Toys for Tots, canned food, and monetary donations accepted for Second Harvest Food Bank)
- 12/20 — Tangled String Studios, Huntsville, AL (Monetary donations accepted for Food Bank of North Alabama)
- 12/21 — Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts, Franklin, NC (Toys for Tots, monetary donations accepted for Macon County Care Net)
Sierra will be taking a band with her for this tour, with accompaniment provided by Justin Moses, Kai Welch, Eddie Barbash, Ethan Jodziewicz, and Jamie Dick.
