Gorton Center Live Presents: The Ghost of Paul Revere

07/10/2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Gorton Center Live Presents: The Ghost of Paul Revere

Since forming in 2011, The Ghost of Paul Revere has created a following that has propelled them from a local to a national level, tallying 15 million total independent streams to date. 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. 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 Music + Arts Experience. 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 after being passed unanimously by the Senate and House of Representatives and signed into law by Maine’s Governor, Janet Mills.

“The Maine-grown, foot-stompin’ holler-folk quartet create the type of music for which festivals are made.
