XPoNential Music Festival 2009 Artist

The Bacon Brothers

The Bacon BrothersWith their strong elements of alt-country, folk, blues and Americana, The Bacon Brothers bring their rootsy rock 'n roll to the XPoNential Music Festival this July.

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. They have been writing music as a team since childhood, but didn't begin working together formally until 1995. After Michael 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 and their chemistry was immediately evenident in their rootsy rock 'n' roll songs and live performances.

The duo released their sixth full-length album, New Year's Daylast November on Forosoco Records, incorporating jazzy blues and reggae into their sound.
