Blending soulful bluegrass with folk and alternative rock influences, the Maine-based trio The Ghost of Paul Revere builds upon the importance of community and connection, crafting songs that evoke empathy for the inevitable ups and downs of life. Full of both haunting and jaunty bluegrass instrumentals, their most recent album release, Field Notes, Vol. 3, features several incredible live songs.
The band also re-released their acclaimed album, Monarch, on April 15.
Composed of Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry, The Ghost of Paul Revere has released three full-length albums in their tenure. Having experienced similar personal hardships, all three members bond through the power of making and exploring music.
Following the passing of a close friend, their album, Good at Losing Everything, was written during the grief process. The tracks on this album reflect both the individual and shared difficulties of each musician; somber lyrics relay the uniquely human emotions that accompany death and loss.
Fueled by pride for their origin state, the group strives to celebrate Maine’s culture through their musical pursuits. Their song, “Ballad of the 20th Maine” was made the official State Ballad of Maine. The band also hosts its own festival – Ghostland – which is held over Labor Day weekend. Brought to life in 2014, the annual event has quickly morphed into one of Maine’s largest festivals. Prior to their upcoming performance at Delfest, the band has been on their “The Last Ride Tour ‘22” with Early James.
The trio will be electrifying audiences this weekend at the aforementioned music festival, set to take place on the Allegany County Fairgrounds in Cumberland, Maryland, and are slated to perform in the 6:40 window this Friday May 27th and again on Saturday at 2:30. You can find the full schedule of acts here.
The trio will continue traveling to various venues across the United States from June through August, wrapping up with their Ghostland festival in Portland, ME.
