Limited Edition Double LP pressed on 180G Black Vinyl

The first ever live album from Grammy-winning band, Nickel Creek, recorded at Fox Theater in Oakland, CA during the band's 2014 tour behind 'A Dotted Line’. Nickel Creek is the Grammy Award winning roots-music trio of violinist Sara Watkins, mandolinist Chris Thile, and guitarist Sean Watkins. After the close of their Farewell (For Now) tour in 2007, which culminated at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Nickel Creek was not actually contemplating a break-up, as many in its large fan-base feared. The still startlingly young band-mates simply needed some time to grow up, musically and personally, away from the glare of the spotlight they’d shared since they were kids. Sara and Chris were merely eight years old when they and the 12 year-old Sean played their first gig as Nickel Creek at a San Diego pizza parlor, having been brought together by a mutual music teacher. Chris’ dad played bass. After ten years of work on the contemporary bluegrass circuit, the prodigious trio landed a deal with the independent Sugar Hill Records, championed by violinist Alison Krauss, who would produce Nickel Creek’s first two Sugar Hill releases, its self-titled 2000 debut, and the 2002 follow-up This Side, which garnered a Best Contemporary Folk Album Grammy. Nickel Creek’s third studio album, 2005's Why Should the Fire Die?, was a more ambitious effort, prefiguring the expansive solo work to come individually from these musicians. It was produced in part by Eric Valentine, whose credits in punk, alt rock, and pop made him the least likely, but somehow just right, candidate for the job. In 2014, Nickel Creek released their most recent album, A Dotted Line, their second with Eric Valentine and embarked on a sold out 25th Anniversary Tour.
