Sierra Hull Announces ‘Christmas Time is Here’ Tour

Nashville-based bluegrass artist Sierra Hull announced her ‘Christmas Time Is Here’ tour on Friday, designed to give back to several communities across the midwest and south this holiday season.

Each of the four tour stops will be partnered with Toys for Tots and/or a local food bank,  seeking to ease the stress of the holidays for the less fortunate. Each attending fan who donates an unwrapped toy, canned foods, or makes a monetary donation to the local food bank on-site will receive a free, signed poster for Hull’s Grammy-nominated latest release, Weighted Mind, while supplies last.

Together, with her band (Justin Moses, Kai Welch, Eddie Barbash, Ethan Jodziewicz, and Jamie Dick), Hull aims to bring Christmas joy to those attending the shows and those in need this December. Details on each tour stop are below:

Dec. 7 — Sheldon Concert Hall — St. Louis, MO
