Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sean Watkins is playing Club Passim in Cambridge, MA on Tuesday, November 28th at 8 PM. Watkins has long been known for his work as one-third of the Grammy Award-winning Nickel Creek and, more recently, for helming, with sister Sara, the itinerant, genre-hopping Watkins Family Hour ensemble. But in the last year he has more assertively – and impressively – taken on the role of solo artist. "What To Fear" is a follow-up to 2014’s acclaimed "All I Do Is Lie", which had been Watkins’ first solo effort in nearly a decade. On his own, Watkins displays tremendous warmth and soulfulness as a singer, a refreshing candor and humor as a lyricist, and prodigious skill as an arranger. And he doesn’t merely stick with the familiar: On "What To Fear", he bolsters an acoustic lineup with a rock rhythm section, bringing drama and drive to these new tracks while keeping intact the emotional intimacy of all the stories he is telling. Tickets are on-sale now at www.clubpassim.org.
