Nickel Creek and Andrew Bird

with Mike Viola

About Nickel Creek:

Nickel Creek is mandolinist Chris Thile, violinist Sara Watkins and guitarist Sean Watkins. Together a sum of more than their staggering parts, the trio revolutionized bluegrass and folk in the early 2000s and ushered in a new era of what we now recognize as Americana music. After a nine year absence, the Platinum-selling, Grammy Award - winning trio returned in 2023 with the highly-anticipated album, Celebrants — a bounty of 18 disparate but loosely connected songs written collectively during a creative retrea t in Santa Barbara in early 2021. The result is perhaps the most audacious yet accessible release of the Grammy-winning trio’s 34 - year career. The entire enterprise is, naturally, shot through with the trio’s virtuosic picking and shiver - inducing harmonies . The lyrics — addressing love, friendship, time, and the universal travails of travel — combine the poetic and plain - spoken, hitting a sweet spot of ethereal and relatable as bridges are built, crossed, burned, and rebuilt.
