Sara Watkins

We first heard Sara Watkins when she was a teenage fiddle player with the platinum selling bluegrass group Nickel Creek. She sings, write songs, plays ukulele and guitar and even played percussion while touring with The Decemberists. She’s now a solo artist on Nonesuch Records. She’s said of her faith, “You try being aware of your faith at all times.” Listen to “Take Up Your Spade” from her newest album “Sun Midnight Sun” here. On the track she sings, “Forgive and be forgiven . . . give thanks for all you have been given . . . take up your spade and break ground.”
