Nickel Creek & Fiona Apple – 2007 collaborative & farewell Tour Dates (Summerstage)
Check out this news…..
Fiona Apple (again) & Nickel Creek are playing Central Park Summerstage in NYC on August 14th, but it gets better (or worse) than that:
The members of Nickel Creek and Apple met several years ago in Los Angeles, and began occasionally working together at the club Largo – an intimate and magnetic music club that has become legendary for stellar lineups and surprise appearances. A loose and friendly musical exchange began with Apple sitting in on Sean and Sara Waktins’ ‘anything goes’ “Watkins Family Hour,” and with either Thile or the Watkins returning the favor whenever possible.
For the August dates, fans will be treated to an expansion of those collaborations developed at Largo. Naturally, material will be pulled from both artists’ solo catalogues, but fans can also expect to hear anything from pop standards to country classics to modern rock covers. Apple’s presentation will be unique in that she will rely on Nickel Creek for back up during her set.
As you may know, club Largo in LA is also where Jon Brion does his weekly shows – sometimes with Fiona, and some times with Chris. I assume that’s where the above video was taken. Jon was just on tour with Nickel Creek. Fiona starts touring with them on August 2nd. Before that Nickel Creek have Glen Phillips opening, and it’s important to note that this will be Nickel Creek‘s farewell-for-now tour. All tour dates below….
