Kindred Fire plans an energy-packed concert benefitting Rome Little Theatre on Friday, July 23, with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. and music beginning at 8.
Says Austen Earp of Kindred Fire. “We’re thrilled to bring our music to the Rome Little Theatre stage and support their mission in making the arts accessible to Rome.”
Kindred Fire is comprised of Earp and Haley Morgan Smith. The friendship goes back to 2007, where they have, together and separately, played in numerous bands, had various successes with major record labels, toured extensively, and written a catalog of songs. A decade later, Austen and Haley found themselves searching for the fire and passion that music had brought them when they were younger – before it became work. As true kindred spirits, they found that in each other. Kindred Fire was created, and they began playing and writing songs together, and performing throughout the region.
“Our goal is not just to write catchy, fun music,” says Smith. “We love that, but we also want to inspire the next generation. Encourage them to identify their creative passions and use them to make the world more kind, more unified, and more beautiful.”
Tickets for Kindred Fire’s concert can be found on the Rome Little Theatre website at www.romelittletheatre.com. Tickets are available in advance for $18 and day of for $20. For guest comfort, one seat will be left empty between parties. Patrons who are not vaccinated are encouraged to wear masks.
