Grammy award-winning artist Sean Watkins began his ascent into the music industry at the tender age of 12 in the group Nickel Creek. Along with his sister Sara and bandmate Chris Thile, they had humble beginnings playing in a pizza parlor every Saturday night in Carlsbad, California. After playing together for a while they were asked to play in a local festival and have been bringing their eclectic mix of folk and bluegrass music to the masses ever since.
