    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. For additional tour details, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    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.

    Rhiannon Giddens's new album, Freedom Highway, is due next Friday, February 24. But you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the album is streaming in full here as an NPR First Listen. It's a "rich collection, the latest chapter in the 40-year-old master folklorist, banjo virtuoso and vocal powerhouse's epic retelling of our history with its sins and sorrows—and joy born of resilience—fully reinstated," says NPR. "[H]ope comes back to life in Giddens' music."
