GRAMMY Award-winning trio, Nickel Creek—mandolinist Chris Thile, violinist Sara Watkins and guitarist Sean Watkins—were featured on “CBS Saturday Morning” this past weekend as part of their “Saturday Sessions” series, performing three songs from their acclaimed new album, Celebrants: “Where the Long Line Leads,” “Holding Pattern” and “To The Airport.” 

Released last week via Thirty Tigers (stream/purchase here), Celebrants is Nickel Creek’s fifth studio album and their first new release in nine years, marking a long-awaited return for the beloved trio. Recorded at Nashville’s RCA Studio A, the record was produced by longtime collaborator Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, Grace Potter, Weezer) and features Mike Elizondo on bass. In celebration of the release, the group also performed “Where the Long Line Leads” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last week.
