The Ghost of Paul Revere
The Ghost of Paul Revere
“Mumford & Sons meet the Avett Brothers with a twist of bluegrass. Old Crow Medicine Show
with three-part harmonies. The Band for millennials… The Maine-grown, foot-stompin’ holler-folk
quartet create the type of music for which festivals are made.” - The Boston Globe
Born on the banks of the Saco River, brothers in all but name, the Ghost of Paul Revere
is Maine's holler-folk band. A powerful, energetic, non-traditional American folk band that’s
renowned for harmony fueled, heart-pounding performances full of songs with unique identities
that remain undeniably the Ghost of Paul Revere.
Formed around childhood friends Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry, joined
by Matt Young on harmonica, the Ghost of Paul Revere played their first show together in 2011
at a tiny bar in Portland, Maine. Now, they play across the nation, bringing holler-folk into
houses, bars, and music halls. They have shared the stage with the Avett Brothers, The
Travelin’ McCourys, Brown Bird, Spirit Family Reunion, Darlingside, as well as members of
Greensky Bluegrass, the Infamous Stringdusters, and Old Crow Medicine Show.
Their critically acclaimed, Billboard charting full length album Believe, as well as their two
EPs North and Field Notes Vol. 1, have continually been the top selling local albums in Maine
and New Hampshire for more than four years. The Ghost of Paul Revere has since sold out Port
City Music Hall, Stone Mountain Arts Center, and the Strand Theater multiple times, won Best In
Maine at the 2014 New England Music Awards, were an official showcase artist at Folk Alliance
International 2015 and made their Newport Folk Festival debut in August 2015. They capped off
2015 with an electrifying headline performance on New Year's eve at Portland's State Theatre in
front of 1,600 enraptured fans.
In 2016, amidst touring nationally, they returned to the studio to craft their second full
length album, engineered by Jonathan Wyman at Halo Studios and mastered by Adam Ayan of
Gateway Mastering. The album is expected to be released in early 2017.
"Robustly played, masterful amalgamation of bluegrass, folk, and gospel for the Millennial
Generation... The Ghost of Paul Revere prove that superior roots music can come from
anywhere." - No Depression
"Simply put, this band is one to see live... A gorgeous blend of bluegrass, folk and good old
fashioned rock and roll... their performance takes on a boot-clacking brilliance that transforms
each song into a full-on participatory event, sending an electric surge about the room that’s near
impossible not to feel. Add to that a layered three part harmony coursing through each soulful
song, and The Ghost of Paul Revere demonstrated they not only had the chops, but the heart to
reach their audience and leave an undeniable impression as well. As the floorboards shook with
each pounding stomp, one thing was certain: the band announced they had arrived, loud and
clear." - Dispatch Magazine
"Simply put North is an album that shouldn't be missed. (It will) make even the most callous of
individuals feel the unbridled joy of Holler-Folk." - Ear to the Ground Music
"A distinguished sound that only seasoned musicians can usually attain" - Portland Press Herald
"(The Ghost of Paul Revere) stole the show. I was so impressed with them. Their harmonies,
stomping percussion, and vocal power were stellar... their songs progressed from mellow to
powerhouse... their harmonies are superb and their songs have power." -
The Last Revel
The Last Revel
From the budding music scene of the Upper Midwest comes the cutting edge Front Porch Americana soundscapes of The Last Revel. This powerfully talented trio of multi-instrumentalists from Minneapolis, Minnesota so naturally blends the genres of Folk, Rockabilly, Old Time String-Band and Rock to create a sound that is as equally original as it is timeless. The Last Revel trio utilizes their multi-instrumental abilities to bring the acoustic guitar, upright bass, fiddle, 5-string banjo, harmonica, kick drum and three-part vocal harmonies together to consistently deliver "Bombastic live performances," as well as delicate and haunting folk ballads. With their second, self titled, album released in May of 2015, The Last Revel further demonstrates their ability to create rich and delicately textured recorded material with a modern "tip of the hat" to the storied history of American folk music.
