Acclaimed songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sara Watkins performs tracks from her new album Young In All The Wrong Ways.

This album sees her boldly stepping in to the role of front woman following the collaborative groups of Watkins Family Hour and the Platinum-selling, Grammy Award-winning Nickel Creek, which she first formed with her brother Sean Watkins and Chris Thile when she was just eight years old. Easily her most cohesive and fully realized album of her solo career, it is also her most powerful, personal and revealing; she wrote or co-wrote each of the 10 songs ­ a first for her.

Watkins calls the new collection ‘a breakup album with myself…’ and writing and recording these ten intensely soul-baring songs was a means for her to process and mark the last couple years, which have been transformative. These songs contain some of the heaviest moments of her career, with eruptions of thrumming B3 organ and jagged electric guitar. But it’s also quiet, vulnerable, tenderhearted.

This event is in aid of Festival Spirit.

This event was due to take place at The Met but due to our refurbishment will now take place at The Fusilier Museum. For more information please click here
