Returning to the studio as Watkins Family Hour, founding members of Nickel Creek Sean and Sara Watkins consider brother sister a duo-centric record – yet one that feels bigger than just two people. With Sean primarily on guitar and Sara on fiddle, and with both of them sharing vocals, the siblings enlisted producer Mike Viola (Jenny Lewis, Mandy Moore, J.S. Ondara) and mixer-engineer Clay Blair to harness the energy and honesty of their live sound. Opening for Watkins Family Hour is Jesse Harper, founding member and lead singer of acoustic supergroups Old School Freight Train and Love Canon.
