Nickel Creek’s Sara Watkins to perform at Lyric Theatre on Friday, Oct. 12
Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek will perform at the Lyric Theatre at 8 p.m. on Oct. 12 as part of the theatre’s Live at the Lyric 2012-13 series.
Watkins has never been a stranger to hard work. In addition to her own gigs and her ongoing Largo residency, she has been one of the most frequent guest artists on American Public Media’s “A Prairie Home Companion.” Not only that, but Garrison Keillor offered Watkins the unprecedented opportunity to host an entire show, the first time he had entrusted another artist with his job. As Keillor put it, “For once in my life, I want to stand in the back of the hall and watch for a few minutes. And Sara is a smart and funny and hugely gifted young woman.” She and brother Sean also found time to schedule some dates with the Blind Boys of Alabama and join Lyle Lovett in an interpretation, with music, of “Much Ado About Nothing” at L.A.’s Shakespeare Center.
Gold tickets are $20, and silver tickets are $20. The event will include a cash bar. For more information, call 951-4771 or visit www.thelyric.com/live.
