The “indefinite hiatus” of this talented trio has officially ended. Nickel Creek's new album A Dotted Line was released earlier this year and it marks 25 years since Chris Thile, Sara Watkins and Sean Watkins started making music together. Chris, Sara and Sean spoke with host Darren DeVivo and performed a few live songs ahead of a big Beacon Theatre show this spring, and they'll continue the tour into the summer with stops at Celebrate Brooklyn and the Newport Folk Festival.

Sara Watkins - Words and Music - 2012

by Claudia Marshall

Sara Watkins was only 8 when she began playing fiddle with her future Nickel Creek bandmates, but she has since stretched her wings into a solo career. Her latest album, Sun Midnight Sun, ranges from progressive bluegrass to West Coast folk and indie pop, so Sara—and her brother Sean—stopped by Studio A for some beautiful live performances.
