SONG: Nickel Creek is out of the woods and it’s awesome
Nostalgia break. One of SoCal’s finest harmonic trios. Nickel Creek consists of Chris Thile (mandolin), and siblings Sara Watkins (fiddle) and Sean Watkins (guitar). Formed in 1989 in San Diego, they released six albums between 1993 and 2006. The band broke out in 2000 with a platinum-selling self-titled album produced by Alison Krauss, earning a number of Grammy and CMA nominations.
