From the Artist
Take your bluegrass stereotypesâ"men in suits singing about Appalachia in a high lonesome styleâ"and invert them. Now you have Nickel Creek. This stylish trio of twentysomethings make bluegrass safe for city folk. Mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Sean Watkins, and violinist Sara Watkins are students of the past and practitioners of the present. Children of sunny southern California, Nickel Creekâs music is naturally mellow and earthy, infused with both a traditional and Celtic feel. With their refreshing sound and youth, Nickel Creek cannot help but continue their successful ways.
