This summer, Tom Brosseau will join the touring act Watkins Family Hour, head by brother and sister Sara Watkins and Sean Watkins. Sara and Sean you’ll remember from the bluegrass band Nickel Creek, but both have had their own successful solo careers. In 2012, Sara released her second album, Sun Midnight Sun (Nonesuch Records), and in 2014 Sean released All I Do Is Lie (Perfect Left Music/ Roaring Girls Records). You may also recall Sean produced Brosseau’s 2014 album, Grass Punks (Crossbill Records/ Tin Angel Records). Watkins Family Hour began their musical journey in Los Angeles at the venue Largo in the early 2000s, and in their act have spotlighted many great performers, including Fiona Apple, David Garza, Jackson Browne, Jon Brion, Benmont Tench, Don Heffington, and bassist extraordinaire Sebastian Steinberg. They will be supporting their debut self-tilted album, Watkins Family Hour (Family Hour Records / Thirty Tigers). These shows will be a good time, sure not to be missed!
