The Bacon Brothers in Concert

Sept. 9

Gruene Hall, 1281 Gruene Road

Bound by blood and a mutual love of American roots music, the Bacon Brothers (Erato, Michael and Kevin Bacon) 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—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.
