We are overwhelmingly pleased to be able to present the remarkable, multi-platinum Grammy winning artists Nickel Creek,to Band on the Wall.

Featuring mandolinist Chris Thile, violinist Sara Watkins and guitarist Sean Watkins; a trio that truly revolutionised bluegrass and folk in the early 2000s and ushered in a new era of what we now recognise as Americana music.

After a nine year absence, the Platinum-selling, Grammy Award-winning trio are set to return in 2023 with the highly-anticipated album, Celebrants — a bounty of 18 disparate but loosely connected songs written collectively during a creative retreat in Santa Barbara in early 2021. The result is perhaps the most audacious yet accessible release of the trio’s 34-year career.

The entire enterprise is shot through with virtuosic picking and shiver-inducing harmonies. The lyrics—addressing love, friendship, time, and the universal travails of travel—combine the poetic and plain-spoken, hitting a sweet spot of ethereal and relatable as bridges are built, crossed, burned, and rebuilt.

This is an incredibly rare opportunity to see these amazing artists in a relatively small club setting, and will undoubtedly be one that only a lucky few will be able to say ‘I was there!’

Gaby Moreno Armed with a warm, soulful sound, Moreno creates music that offers an intoxicating invitation into her musical world for English and Spanish speakers alike.
