Nickel Creek have performed a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR's All Songs Considered, featuring four songs from the group's new album, A Dotted Line. "Nickel Creek was made to sing and play around a single microphone, so a Tiny Desk Concert seemed inevitable," says All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen. "The trio, backed here by bassist Mark Schatz, has no equal. Nickel Creek has been doing this on and off since its members were kids, and what blows me away is the comfort and ease with which they navigate their instruments. That skill, and the creative force behind it, is a joy and a thrill to witness." Watch it here.
