AmericanaFest: Watkins Family Hour Plays Dylan

Amazing night Outdoors At Lincoln Center on Saturday 8/8/2015 as an all-star band (Smokey Hormel, David Garza, Benmont Tench, Al Kooper, etc) played Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited for the second annual AmericanaFest NYC.  Watkins Family Hour, the long running side band of Nickel Creek’s siblings Sean and Sara Watkins and these days featuring Fiona Apple, anchored the show as artists like Shawn Colvin, The Both (Aimee Mann & Ted Leo) and Pokey LaFarge took turns on vocals.  Watkins Family Hour has just released their eponymous debut album.
