Watkins Family Hour (Sara & Sean Watkins Of Nickel Creek)

Los Angeles-based Sean and Sara Watkins (of GRAMMY®-Award-winning Nickel Creek) share how their musical neighborhood has contracted and expanded over the past year. The brother-sister pair (their album "brother sister" came out in 2020) has taken Watkins Family Hour—their well-loved variety show in residence at Largo for the last 20 years—to Sean’s backyard, where they’ve livestreamed intimate, socially distanced concerts via Patreon. They discuss holding communal space for their Largo family while opening the doors to new friends outside LA and muse on the ways in which lockdown has afforded us a deeper capacity for feeling (are we all crying more?). Finally, they offer a tender reflection on their dear late friend, drummer Don Heffington.
