8/18/19 We've had a busy Summer with plenty of shows and also, the usual summer fun! Keep an eye on our Live Shows section for more end of Summer and Fall shows. Check out our new band, The Restless Soles at Facebook.com/therestlesssoles. Don't worry, "meet the bacons" is still going strong! We love playing with a full band, too, so The Restless Soles satisfy that joy.
“meet the bacons” is the husband and wife acoustic duo of Joe and Robin Bacon. Their sound is built on strong vocal harmonies with guitar, harmonica and hand percussion.“meet the bacons” play songs by others that have intrigued and inspired them over the years, as well as plenty of crowd favorites.
“meet the bacons” also write and perform their own songs, with stories about New Orleans street parades, love cherished and abandoned, memories sparked by misplaced funeral cards, disconnected veterans of war, working musician woes, rye whiskey and the beauty of a love and her colorful dresses.
“meet the bacons” are from Buffalo, NY and draw influences from many great vocal duos, like Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Simon and Garfunkel, Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, and Shovels and Rope. They play music styles that span classic country, rock, bluegrass, blues and folk (more easily described as Americana music).
"meet the Bacons" play live at festivals, concerts, taverns, restaurants, patios and parks and wherever the music takes them.
Joe and Robin also play together in in the four-piece Americana, Country, Rock, World music band, "The Restless Soles" (Facebook.com/therestlesssoles) and the four-piece Celtic Rock Band, "Poor Ould Goat" (Facebook.com/poorouldgoat)
