Devotees of folk and bluegrass -- and, of course, diehard Nickel Creek fans -- are the natural audience for this leisurely paced documentary.
How to Grow a Band might be a bit too low-key for the non-fan, but that's not to say the tour doc lacks substance: It doubles nicely as a fly-on-the-wall case study in the demands of making music for a living.
