Shooter Jennings and Watkins Family Hour Added to the March 28 PBS TV Taping of Bluegrass Underground
Shooter Jennings and Watkins Family Hour join The Milk Carton Kids and Sam Lewis for the Saturday, March 28 PBS TV Taping of Bluegrass Underground. Tickets available now!
This event is a rare opportunity to see brother sister duo, Sean and Sara Watkins, as Watkins Family Hour, a project they started in 2002 in Los Angeles to try out some original songs and a few covers that wouldn’t work in Nickel Creek.
Watkins Family Hour—the acclaimed musical collective featuring Grammy Award-winning siblings Sara and Sean Watkins—will release their highly anticipated new album, brother sister, April 10 via Family Hour Records/Thirty Tigers (pre-order here). In advance of the release, their new song, “Just Another Reason,” is debuting today. Watch/share the official music video HERE.
A band of extraordinary chemistry and exquisite musicianship, I’m With Her features Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan. Collectively, the multi-Grammy-Award-winners have released seven solo efforts, co-founded two seminal bands (Nickel Creek and Crooked Still), and contributed to critically acclaimed albums from a host of esteemed artists.
Sometimes a pet-project grows into a full concept far surpassing the inventor's original prospects. For veteran bluegrass siblings Sara and Sean Watkins, they likely began their musical Family Hour as a way to ease the strains of rigorous touring in their native Southern California. In their natural habitat of Americana, exploring favorite originals and classic canonical country brought them enough pleasure to make a regular occasion out of it.
