Tickets on sale now to see GRAMMY Award-winning trio, Nickel Creek—mandolinist Chris Thile, violinist Sara Watkins and guitarist Sean Watkins— at the Stiefel Theatre on Thurs., October 19 @ 7:30pm as they continue their extensive headline tour through the fall. The tour—their first as a group since 2014—adds to a landmark year for Nickel Creek, who released their first new album (CELEBRANT) in nine years. Nickel Creek revolutionized bluegrass and folk in the early 2000s and ushered in a new era of what we now recognize as Americana music. After meeting as young children and subsequently earning the respect of the bluegrass circuit for a decade, the trio signed with venerable label, Sugar Hill Records, in 2000 and quickly broke through with their Grammy-nominated, Alison Krauss-produced self-titled LP. Since that effort, the trio has released three more studio albums to date: 2002’s This Side, which won Best Contemporary Folk Album at the 45th Grammy Awards, 2005’s Why Should the Fire Die? and 2014’s A Dotted Line. Tickets start @ $59 and are available at our box office at stiefeltheatre.org, in person at the Box Office at 151 S. Santa Fe or by calling 785-827-1998.
