Grammy Winning Singer-Songwriter and Fiddler SARA WATKINS comes to the South Bay

On Friday, November 14th at 8:00 p.m., the Grand Annex presents Sara Watkins, award-winning fiddler and singer-songwriter.  Sara began performing in 1989 at the age of 8 with the “newgrass” group, Nickel Creek.  Nickel Creek was started by Sara Watkins, her brother Sean Watkins, and their childhood friend Chris Thile, after their private lesson instructors introduced the kids to each other.  Since Nickel Creek’s break-up in 2007, Sara has established herself as a solo artist with her albums Sara Watkins and Sun Midnight Sun.

While involved with Nickel Creek, Sara Watkins won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album, the IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year and CMT’s Top 10 Country Compilations.  As a solo artist, Sara has toured with such acts  as the Decemberists, Garrison Keillo, and Jackson Browne.  Her solo albums have hit the top of the folk charts, featuring artists such as Fiona Apple, Dan Wilson, and Willie Nelson.

“We've played together a number of times in the last few years, sometimes on her show and sometimes mine, and it's always been a thrill for me. I'm floored by her amazing instrumental virtuosity and by her beautiful voice, and most of all, I love her songs,” said Jackson Browne (after touring with Sara Watkins).
