(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre presents The Bacon Brothers on Saturday, June 10, 2023. This is where Kevin Bacon gets away from acting and back to his musical roots with his brother, Michael. Doors are at 7:00pm, showtime is 8:00pm.
Bound by blood and a mutual love of American roots music, The Bacon Brothers have spent the past quarter-century in a creative whirl, funneling their shared DNA into a genre-bending sound. They call that sound "Forosoco" — a blend of folk, rock, soul and country influences, delivered by two songwriters who were born to collaborate — and it's taken the siblings across the world, from shows in Japan to performances at American landmarks like Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry.
The Bacon Brothers turn a new page with their 11th release, “Erato”, whose five songs showcase the duo at their diverse peak. It's an EP of dynamic contrasts: quiet moments and big payoffs, organic instrumentation and electronic textures, self-penned songs and high-profile collaborations. For Michael and Kevin Bacon, it's also the continuation of a story that began long ago in Philadelphia, where the two siblings were raised on a soundtrack of 1970s singer/songwriters, Philly soul singers and classic rock bands. With “Erato”, Michael and Kevin Bacon — brothers, songwriters, frontmen and multi-instrumentalists — prove their staying power once again.
