[FIDDLE FOLK] It is sometimes hard to remember that Watkins, who is 31 years old, was in the bluegrass band Nickel Creek for almost 20 years, but she has been blazing a solo trail for a handful of years now, and has finally come into her own. Her latest goes beyond mere bluegrass, wandering into the realms of alt-rock, funk, folk and pop. Watkins shows she can be daring, exemplified by a dark duet with Fiona Apple on the Every Brothers’ classic “You’re the One I Love.” Her fiddling is as accomplished as ever, and her sweet vocals grab you and will not let go.
