When we tried to talk to the very wonderful folk trio Nickel Creek earlier this summer, some technical gremlins gummed up the works and forced us to reschedule. Fortunately, Sara Watkins, Sean Watkins and Chris Thille were more than gracious enough to come back around and see us sometime — that sometime being this morning, of course — and they brought along some recorded tracks from their aborted July interview in New York City’s Argot Studios.

Those three tracks — played during our interview with the trio today — are sampled here for your individual listening pleasure. Thanks to the trio for their witty and wonderful conversation, and for making the time to talk with us again after that previously failed attempt.

Nickel Creek Plays “Rest of My Life”

Nickel Creek Plays “Destination”

Nickel Creek Plays “Hayloft”
