My guest this week is singer, songwriter and fiddle player Sara Watkins. Watkins debuted in 1989 (at the ripe old age age of 8!!) as a founding member of the progressive bluegrass group Nickel Creek along with her brother Sean and mandolinist Chris Thile. With Nickel Creek, Watkins released five studio albums, won a Grammy and many other awards, and worked with some stellar producers like Allison Krauss and Eric Valentine. At the height of their success, the band decided to go their separate ways (for a while) and in the years of the bands' hiatus, she started recording solo albums, and has made incredible records with the likes of John Paul Jones, Blake Mills and Gabe Witcher. Her new album is called "Young In All The Wrong Ways". It was great to have a chance to sit down and talk about all this and more with her - Enjoy my conversation with Sara Watkins, and please subscribe to the podcast for free on iTunes!
