“Nickel Creek takes us on a journey that we don’t want to miss.”—Folk Alley

Nickel Creek is the platinum-selling, internationally renowned roots trio of mandolinist Chris Thile, violinist Sara Watkins, and guitarist Sean Watkins. The Grammy-winning band revolutionized the bluegrass and folk music world in the early 2000s and helped usher in a new era of what we now recognize as Americana music. In support of their first new album in nine years, Celebrants, the much admired and highly accomplished musical threesome brings their virtuosic picking and shiver-inducing harmonies to Hodgson Concert Hall for the first time to open the UGA Presents season.

Grammy Award-winner Aoife O’Donovan operates in a musical world beyond genre. Deemed “a vocalist of unerring instinct” by The New York Times, she has released three critically-acclaimed solo albums. Aoife is one third of the Grammy-winning group I’m With Her with bandmates Sara Watkins and Sarah Jarosz. She is also the featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions—the group with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile.
