Singer-fiddler Sara Watkins and her guitarist-brother Sean Watkins have managed to make Largo feel like an intimate living-room jam in the middle of frenetic and flashy West Hollywood. Both former members of bluegrass upstarts Nickel Creek are engaging singers and instrumentalists with deep catalogs of their own, but at their monthly gathering they also surprise fans with unexpected cover songs and even more unexpected guest visitations from such heavy friends as Fiona Apple and Jackson Browne, along with intuitive backing from Greg Leisz, Soul Coughing’s Sebastian Steinberg and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench. You never know who might show up, and you never know what will be on the setlist, but expect some achingly beautiful, heartfelt harmonies and lilting, lovely balladry amid all the easygoing joking and song-swapping.
