Nickel Creek+The Secret Sisters
On Tuesday, at New York's historic Beacon Theatre, two acts who nod to the past will be gracing the stage. Opening act The Secret Sisters are a pair of real life siblings who got their break at an open call held by a major label in Nashville and unlike their debut full of classic covers, their sophomore release Put the Needle Down is almost entirely original songs. Nickel Creek is easily the most popular bluegrass act in America, and when Chris Thile, Sarah Watkins and Sean Watkins announced their hiatus in 2007, fans were devastated. Luckily, seven years later, the group has released their new record The Dotted Line. Expect plenty of old favorites from them sprinkled in with brand new bluegrass gems.
