Watkins Family Hour
Twenty years after their beginnings, musician and sibling duo Sara and Sean celebrate the release of their third studio album.
When Sara and Sean Watkins first began playing Watkins Family Hour shows at Los Angeles’s beloved Largo, the siblings and musicians had little idea just how far the collaborative variety show would go. Twenty years, two studio albums, and hundreds of performances later, the two are taking stock of the ever-evolving community of musicians and music lovers the project helped build. As part of that reflection, Watkins Family Hour is releasing its third studio album Vol. II. The collection features a number of longtime friends of the show joining Sean and Sara across 11 tracks that encapsulate where Watkins Family Hour started, how the project grew, and where it could be headed in the future.
As both Sean and Sara continue to work on their own solo music, Watkins Family Hour remains an invaluable resource and respite for them both, offering a familiar but ever-evolving space to test new ideas, meet new collaborators, and, most importantly, have a good time doing what they love. The siblings will bring their beloved music to life on Center Stage on September 23.
