Sara Watkins

In 2012 Nonesuch Records released Sara Watkins’ Sophmore album, Sun Midnight Sun, to critical praise, with USA Today giving the album four stars and calling it “flawless…a gorgeous pop masterpiece,” while The Wrap says “it might be the finest album of the year.” Sun Midnight Sun was produced by Blake Mills and recorded, mixed, and mastered by Shawn Everett at Zeitgeist Studio in Los Angeles. The album follows Watkins’ 2009 self-titled solo debut, which was produced by John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin). In the three years between releases, Watkins toured the world as guest fiddle player and vocalist with the Decemberists and joined Garrison Keillor on his nationwide Summer Love performance tours, as well as acting as his first and only guest host for "A Prairie Home Companion" broadcasts.

Sara first gained recognition as a founding member of the Grammy Award–winning, platinum-selling trio Nickel Creek. When not on the road or in the studio, Watkins has guest-starred as fiddler and/or harmony vocalist on albums by Béla Fleck, the Chieftains, Ray LaMontagne, Ben Lee, Dan Wilson, Richard Thompson, and Alex Woodward, among others. Additionally, Watkins and her brother Sean continue an informal residency called the Watkins Family Hour at the L.A. club Largo, which often includes surprise cameos from friends and colleagues.
