From the venue:Music stitches together a strong community around The Ghost of Paul Revere. The Maine trio—Max Davis [vocals, banjo], Sean McCarthy [vocals, bass], and Griffin Sherry [vocals, guitar]—examine life’s ebbs and flows through a distinct and dynamic distillation of folk, bluegrass, rock, and alternative. Since forming in 2011, the band has created a following that has propelled from the local to national level, tallying 16 million total independent streams to date. After releasing the EP North in 2012, their signature style progressed over the course of two full-length albums—Believe  and Monarch —and a pair of EPs—Field Notes, Vol. 1  and Field Notes, Vol. 2 . The band has performed alongside The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, The Revivalists, Bela Fleck, and The Infamous Stringdusters, sold out countless headlining gigs, and appeared at major festivals nationwide: Newport Folk, Austin City Limits, WinterWonderGrass, BottleRock Napa, Shaky Knees, Okeechobee, and Voodoo Fest. The boys took home “Best in Maine” at the New England Music Awards twice, in 2015 and 2019. In 2019, their song, “Ballad Of The 20th Maine”, became the official State Ballad of Maine. In 2014, they began curating their very own festival, Ghostland, drawing local and national talent to the annual Labor Day Weekend event. With more music and touring on the horizon, The Ghost of Paul Revere continue to expand their community.
