Multi-instrumentalist Sara Watkins and singer-songwriter Susan Werner will perform at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 30 at the Lied Center for Performing Arts.

Tickets are on sale here, by phone at 402-472-4747 or at the Lied Center box office, 301 N. 12th St. Students can purchase tickets at a 50 percent discount with a valid NCard.

First praised for her work as a founding member of the progressive bluegrass group Nickel Creek, Watkins has since established a strong solo career including acclaimed studio albums, regular appearances on “A Prairie Home Companion” and collaborations with artists such as John Mayer and The Decemberists.

In 2015, Sara Watkins and her brother Sean (also a member of Nickel Creek) toured as the Watkins Family Hour, including stops at Conan, NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert and the Newport Folk Festival. The project featured an all-star band of Fiona Apple, Benmont Tench, Sebastian Steinberg and Don Heffington. In 2016, Watkins released her first solo offering in nearly four years, “Young in All the Wrong Ways.”

Special guest Werner, dubbed by NPR as the “Empress of the Unexpected,” will join Watkins for a performance that traverses pop, folk, blues, country, roots, jazz and gospel with grace and wit.

The performance is sponsored by Ace Rent to Own and Nebraska Lottery.
