Saturday, December 16 
7:30 p.m. both nights


Watkins co-founded Nickel Creek when he was 12 years old, kick starting a career that’s taken him from the stage of the Grammy Awards to the top of the bluegrass charts.

He is an award-winning guitarist, a singer/songwriter and one of the early pioneers of a genre now known across the world as Americana.

Folk fans are familiar with Nickel Creek’s story. Formed decades ago as a bluegrass trio, the group expanded its sound and its popularity with albums like the Grammy winning This Side, which became a crossover hit on the bluegrass, country and pop charts in 2002.  Meanwhile, Watkins has played with musicians from many genres, even joining the tours of legendary songwriters like Jackson Browne and Lyle Lovett.

Working with those icons felt like going to music school, and Watkins learned all the lessons he could.

The venue is intimate and Watkins world class.  Feist offers wood fired pizza starting at 6 p.m.

Tickets are available at the tasting room.
