FOLK FEST TICKET INFO

More than bluegrass, more than pop, more than alternative, the music of Sara Watkins has grown into something unique. Sara has been a favorite of Michigan audiences ever since her days with the pathbreaking progressive bluegrass band Nickel Creek. She’s a formidable songwriter as well as a lovely fiddler and vocalist, and her music deeply reflects her life and its currents of creativity. “This is a breakup album with myself,” says Sara of her latest solo record, Young in All the Wrong Ways.” “I looked around and realized that in many ways I wasn’t who or where I wanted to be,” Sara says. It’s been a process of letting go and leaving behind patterns and relationships and in some cases how I’ve considered myself. What these songs are documenting is the turmoil you feel when you know something has to change and you’re grappling with what that means. It means you’re losing something and moving forward into the unknown.” Sara Watkins is the MC of the 2022 Ann Arbor Folk Festival.
