“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.
