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 them from a local to a national level, tallying 15 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 (2014) and Monarch (2017) – and a pair of EPs – Field Notes, Vol. 1 (2015) and Field Notes, Vol. 2 (2019). They garnered acclaim from Billboard, Boston Globe, AXS, No Depression, Relix, and The Boot, who appropriately dubbed them, "not quite bluegrass, not quite country, not quite rock 'n' roll, but kind of all three combined." 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, Winter WonderGrass, 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.

In 2014, they began curating, booking, and hosting their very own festival, Ghostland. Rooted in a love for Maine's music community, the festival has grown into one of the state's largest festivals, 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 this community.

Opening Act: The Wolff Sisters Duo
The Wolff Sisters Duo is fronted by two sisters - Rebecca on acoustic guitar, Rachael on electric guitar, and both on lead vocals and harmonies. Raised on the songs of The Band and Little Feat, the sisters crafted their sound around a honky-tonk piano in the living room of their childhood home. New England Music Awards Winner for Americana Artist of the Year 2021 and Boston Music Award winner for Americana Artist of the Year 2020, the band’s electrifying live performance continues to gain momentum and recognition from their hometown of Boston and beyond. Their music is honest and genre defying, but still rooted in traditional rock and Americana storytelling.
