KUTX welcomes Nickel Creek W/ Special Guest Sarah Jarosz
Returning from a seven year hiatus, Nickel Creek sets out on tour to promote their newest album A Dotted Line. This multi-Grammy Award winning trio consists of violinist Sara Watkins, mandolinist Chris Thile, and guitarist Sean Watkins. Playing mainly bluegrass and dabbling into folk-rock, Nickel Creek has built a solid fan base that eagerly waited for this newest album and tour to follow.
This tour marks the 25th year anniversary of Nickel Creek’s formation. Sara and Chris were merely eight years old when they and the 12 year-old Sean played their first gig as Nickel Creek at a San Diego pizza parlor. Now, they play festivals and sold-out shows across the United States. On April 2nd, they showcased their first single “Destination” off their new album on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
