In the past two weeks, Sara Watkins has popped up all over late night TV, promoting her new release SUN, MIDNIGHT SUN. Known as the fierce fiddler with big, brown eyes and a tiny voice, Ms. Sara is obviously out to make herself heard with this new single, "When It Pleases You." She could be Patti Smith howling into the microphone.
Sara, tread cautiously. I have one word for you: NODES.
If you like what you hear here [she does some beautiful, heartbreaking ballads too], you may want to catch her at The Kentucky Center on August 12, when she opens for Jackson Browne. Event and ticketing information can be found here.
SUN MIDNIGHT SUN, the second solo album from acclaimed singer, songwriter, and fiddle player Sara Watkins, features special guest appearances by Fiona Apple, Jackson Browne, Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Benmont Tench, and Sean Watkins.
