Nickel Creek reviewed.

Thursday, March 30, 2006

In his review for the Grand Rapids Press, John Sinkevics had this to say of Nickel’s Creek’s energetic show at Calvin earlier this week:

Nickel Creek mandolin whiz Chris Thile has a theory about performing live, about making the trio’s time on stage something extraordinary to set it apart from the rest of the day.

“You try to elevate two hours out of the 24, make them totally different ... a more transcendent experience,” he told some Calvin College students Tuesday in a preconcert chat.

Mission accomplished.
