A leading exponent of jazz mandolin style and band leader of the Don Stiernberg Trio, Don has eight personal recordings, and appears on others by a variety of artists in all styles.

Already having presented numerous mandolin workshops alone and with other mandolin virtuosos, Sierra brings a youthful slant to bluegrass mandolin applauded by veterans as well.

Whether writing a new piece, learning a tune or performing with his confreres, Dominick has an infectious love of music that inspires others to excel with the same passion.
Dominick has performed the last three years at ROMP and given mandolin workshops each year that have been highly regarded by all attendees.
