Nickel Creek, in 1991 and 2007

This afternoon I stumbled across this video of Sara Watkins, Sean Watkins, and Chris Thile playing together as young kids in 1991 - the early days of Nickel Creek. Sean is actually playing mandolin in this video, and Chris is on guitar. It's amazing how well these kids could play at such a young age!

One of my favorite songs by this group (in later years) is Doubting Thomas.

It's an honest sort of song - maybe not the kind of thing you'd want to hear in church on a Sunday morning - but...

"oh me of little faith"

...really gets me every time.

Also not to be missed is this video from their Farewell (For Now) tour of the group jamming I'll Fly Away with musical influences like Bela Fleck and Gillian Welch.

Oh Nickel Creek, I miss you.
