    Listen: Nickel Creek Featured on NPR's "On Point"
    Brantley Gutierrez

    Nickel Creek—Chris Thile, Sara Watkins, and Sean Watkins—is featured on today's episode of On Point, from NPR member station 90.9 WBUR in Boston. The group performs songs from its recent Nonesuch Records debut album, A Dotted Line—"Destination," "Rest of My Life," and "Hayloft" —and talks with host Tom Ashbrook about the new album, the group's evolution, and the various projects the band members have been working on in the years since the last Nickel Creek album. This year marks 25 years since the formation of the trio, dormant since 2007, and, says Ashbrook: "Now they’re back together, with a great sound." You can listen to the episode here:

    The band is currently touring the United States, making stops this week in Virginia and North Carolina with Josh Ritter and heading west next week with special guest Sarah Jarosz, including a taping of Austin City Limits for future broadcast on PBS.

    To pick up a copy of A Dotted Line, head to iTunes or the Nonesuch Store, where vinyl and CD orders include a free MP3 download of the complete album at checkout; MP3 and FLAC lossless files are also available to purchase there.

    The International Rescue Committee has named Mandy Patinkin an IRC Ambassador in recognition of his continued efforts to advocate for the welcoming of refugees around the world. He traveled with the IRC to Uganda to meet some of the more than one million South Sudanese refugees welcomed there. "Meeting with refugees from all around the world has made one thing very clear to me: all they want is a better tomorrow for their loved ones, their family, their children," says Patinkin. "This is why I am so proud of my partnership with the IRC—an organization tirelessly working to support the world's most vulnerable and give them a chance to survive and thrive despite the worst of circumstances."
