Subject: RE: Nickel Creek--overrated?
I just saw these folks on a bluegrass special on PBS and have had to revise my opinion of them. I'd only heard them on the radio before this and didn't much care for them, but tonight's performance was a real joy to watch and hear. Sure they are young and could use some more maturity and polish, but they still have some real skill, esp. the kid on the mando. FWIW Vince Gill introduced them by saying he wouldn't exactly call what they do "bluegrass" either but there they were with the top dawgs, so to speak.
