Nickel Creek

Nickel Creek features mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile, Sara Watkins on fiddle, and her brother Sean on mandolin. This postmodern bluegrass trio calls its music a conglomeration of everything we listen to.

The band has garnered many awards since its debut album was released in 2000, including recognition as the 2000 International Bluegrass Music Association Emerging Artist of the Year, the 2001 IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year and Mandolin Player of the Year awards, and a 2003 Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album.
