Nickel Creek

Saturday 5 P.M. DON'T MISS Raul Malo. See "Critic's Pick." (Palomino Stage, 4:50-5:40) Miranda Lambert. See "Critic's Pick." (Mane Stage, 5:10-5:55) CATCH IT IF YOU CAN Nickel Creek. (left) This off-the-chart bluegrass trio from San Diego is going on indefinite hiatus after this year so its members — Chris Thile, and siblings Sara and Sean Watkins — can explore solo projects. Not that being in the group ever felt limiting, given their tendency to reinvent sounds as varied as Bach and Radiohead in a folk-jazz-bluegrass vein. (Appaloosa Stage, 4:50-5:40) ALSO Red Steagall. Nice résumé: He's been named the official cowboy poet of both Texas and San Juan Capistrano, has written more than 200 songs and helped launch Reba McEntire on her stellar career after hearing her sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at a rodeo in Oklahoma.(Mustang Stage, 5:10-6:10)
