Get Off Your Duff and See Sierra Ferrell When You Can

There is a moment in the careers of certain artists when you have the opportunity to see them for an affordable price and in a realitvely intimate venue before everything goes crazy and you’re screaming at your screen because you got locked out of a presale, or are putting off the kid’s braces to pay for a couple of tickets. Sierra Ferrell is at that point ahead of the release of her new album Long Time Coming on August 20th, so word to the wise: carve out the time to see her if or when you can.

Continuing to explode in popularity due to multiple viral videos and the pre-release singles to her upcoming Rounder Records debut, Sierra Ferrell is embarking on a serious tour for the rest of 2021, giving folks ample opportunities to see her before she very well may blow up like we’ve seen from so many other independent country stars. And having seen her live I can attest, it’s worth the effort.

Originally from Charleston, West Virginia, Sierra started singing at the age of 7, left home in her 20’s to become a wandering minstrel playing in boxcars and at truck stops, later busking on the streets of New Orleans and Washington State before eventually landing in Nashville. Now her name’s on the tip of the tongue whenever someone asks who many be the “next one” when it comes to independent country and roots.

Co-produced by 10-time Grammy Award-winner Gary Paczosa and Australian musician Stu Hibberd, Long Time Coming was recorded at Nashville’s Southern Ground and Minutia Studios, and finds the nexus between ragtime jazz, bluegrass mountain music, and classic country. Helping Sierra Ferrell along the way was a serious cadre of musicians including Billy Strings, Sarah Jarosz, Dennis Crouch, Jerry Douglas, Tim O’Brien, Chris Scruggs, and Rory Hoffman.
