The historic Kalamazoo State Theatre is honored to announce that the Grammy-winning folk-bluegrass trio, Nickel Creek, will take the stage on Tuesday, February 13, 2024 with support from The Staves. Fresh off their latest album release, “Celebrants,” the Platinum-selling band is embarking on a tour that promises a night of unparalleled musicality.

About Nickel Creek

Comprised of mandolinist Chris Thile, violinist Sara Watkins, and guitarist Sean Watkins, Nickel Creek revolutionized bluegrass and folk music in the early 2000s. Returning from a nine-year hiatus, the trio recently launched “Celebrants,” a masterfully crafted 18-track album written during a creative retreat in early 2021. The album offers a rich tapestry of poetic and heartfelt lyrics, underpinned by virtuosic picking and harmonies that send shivers down the spine.

Why This Show is a Must-See

This concert is not merely a musical event; it is a showcase of an audacious yet accessible body of work that spans a 34-year career. Fans can expect a range of songs that touch on love, friendship, and the passage of time, all delivered in Nickel Creek’s signature ethereal yet relatable style.

Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind opportunity to witness the genre-defining trio in the cozy confines of the Kalamazoo State Theatre.
