The three members of Nickel Creek reunited onstage Wednesday as part of CBS Films’ celebration of the Coen brothers’ folk music tale “Inside Llewyn Davis” and there should be more to come.
Mandolinist Chris Thile, fiddler Sara Watkins and guitarist Sean Watkins are recording an album that Warner Music’s Nonesuch label is eyeing for a spring release. Sara Watkins has released two solo albums on Nonesuch while Thile has recorded with Punch Brothers, the bassist Edgar Meyer and done solo work for the label; his latest, solo interpretations of two Bach pieces, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard Classical Albums chart.
One insider says there will be a half-dozen Nickel Creek performances surrounding the release though exactly when and where is yet to be determined.
