    Sara Watkins's Latest "Mountain Stage" Performance, with Songs from Nonesuch Debut, Now on NPR.org

    Sara Watkins celebrated her birthday in style this year: on June 7, the night before her 28th birthday, Sara joined the legendary singer-songwriter Steve Earle and bluegrass masters Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver in a live concert performance at the Chuck Mathena Center in Princetown, West Virginia, for public radio's Mountain Stage. Now you can hear Sara's birthday-eve performance streaming online at npr.org.

    Sara has appeared on Mountain Stage a number of times, including two performances with Chris Thile and her brother Sean as Nickel Creek. For the latest episode, she joined up again with Sean on guitar to perform songs from her recently released self-titled Nonesuch debut, which the show's host, Larry Groce, calls "a really, really fine recording," as well as a bonus tune not on the album, the Lindsey Buckingham song "Steal Your Heart Away."

    Listen now at npr.org.

    After listening to the Watkins siblings online, you can catch them perform live at Largo in Los Angeles on July 30, first with special guests at the Coronet for The Watkins Family Hour, starting at 8 PM, and then it's Sara and Sean in the Little Room at 9 PM. Sara's recently added a number of new tour dates in August as well. For more information, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
