A rare live appearance by neo-bluegrass pioneers Nickel Creek. The band who, according to NPR, “made Americana the new indie-rock” with their self-titled, Alison Krauss-produced breakthrough album in 2000. Then aged just 18 to 23, Chris Thile, Sara Watkins and Sean Watkins had been playing together since childhood, thus bringing deep-dyed – and dazzling - technical chops to their startlingly inventive fusions of US roots with multi-genre influences. Two further LPs won them both a Grammy and a Billboard Top 20 album chart spot, since when all 3 have forged flourishing individual careers. Following 2014’s 25th anniversary release A Dotted Line, they reunited for a series of livestreams in 2021, rekindling all the pyrotechnic chemistry they bring to the stage.
