SARA WATKINS

2009-05-11

Sara Watkins' self-titled debut album is a fresh look at modern bluegrass. Her album is collection of driving fiddle melodies and soulful ballads. She draws heavily from her near two decades of experience with the award-winning bluegrass trio Nickel Creek, who she included in her album. The album was produced by former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, and includes Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, Benmont Tench, Pete Thomas, Tim O'Brien, Chris Eldridge, Ronnie McCoury, and Rayna Gellert. While the tracks are not all her own, Sara Watkins has an apparent emotional attachment to each one.
