For you fans of Nickel Creek, I have just discovered GIRLYMAN. They remind me a lot of Nickel Creek. And THE GREENCARDS. A couple of Aussies, a Brit, and a new hometown of Austin, Tx. They are wonderful...
the greencards are great,.......

and chris thile's other endeavors are also noteworthy,....i dare say i like it more than then nickle creek stuff,......

I would probably concur with your Chris Thile comment. Nickel Creek was a great band, but I think they ended it at a good time. The third album was definitely my least favorite of the three. I don't recall if I mentioned them, but another recent discovery was GIRLYMAN. They have a nice Folk sound, reminiscent of the earlier Nickel Creek.

I loved Nickel Creek... I saw them 5 years ago at The tabernacle in Atlanta and they did the most awesome ten minute jam session to the Mario Brothers theme continuing to get faster and faster as they went.. I have heard other artists play this theme but this was the first time I had ever heard it done and the best... I was so freaking impressed.
I agree the break up came at a good time in their careers Chris Thile continues to do good things :-)
