The Bacon Brothers In Concert

Long before Kevin Bacon became a movie star and pop-culture phenomenon, and before his older brother Michael became a sought-after film and TV composer, the Philadelphia-based duo was collaborating under the name The Bacon Brothers. Click the link above to hear the pair perform live in concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

The Bacons have been writing music as a team since childhood, but didn't begin working together formally until 1995. After Michael Bacon established his music career with Columbia Records in the '60s — and released several solo albums on CBS Records in the '70s — he turned to collaborating with Kevin. Their chemistry has long been evident in their rootsy rock 'n' roll songs, with their strong elements of alt-country, folk, blues and Americana. The duo just released its sixth full-length album, New Year's Day, on which the Bacons incorporate jazzy blues and reggae into their sound.
