Due to overwhelming demand, holler folk trio The Ghost of Paul Revere have announced two additional “Live At The Drive-In” shows at the Narrow Gauge Cinema in Farmington, ME on October 9th and 10th. The band’s “Live At The Drive-In” series was created with both safety and the overall concert experience in mind and at the forefront. The band performed four sold-out shows in Farmington earlier this summer, and they can’t wait for this return engagement. Tickets are on sale now -- PRESS HERE for more information.
Fans can purchase tickets for the shows for $110 per car (up to 4 people), and there will be a very limited amount of socially distanced seats up front for $60/pair. In order to comply with the CDC guidelines regarding social distancing, audience members will be asked to stay in their designated car area except when using the restroom or purchasing food and beverages. Fans are also asked to wear a mask and stay six feet apart from crowd members when they are outside of their cars. Farmington-based restaurant Big Sky Grill will be selling food and beer for concertgoers next door, and outside food and non-alcoholic beverages are permitted.
“Way back in June (or the Fourth March of the quarantine calendar) we partnered with the Farmington Drive-In to figure out how to create a weekend of live music that was safe,” said Max Davis. “The result, by way of meticulous planning, preparation, and dedication to the current guidelines, was four truly amazing nights. Those nights helped us believe that with a thought out setting and an adaptive, compassionate community, we could slowly continue doing what we love for the people we love. In a time of so many unknowns, that belief means the world to us. We are beyond thrilled to announce our return this October, and we can’t wait to see you there.”
The “Live At The Drive-In” concert series is the latest event from The Ghost of Paul Revere to celebrate the communal spirit of their home state. This past weekend, the band hosted a special Virtual-Edition of their Ghostland Festival dubbed Almost Ghostland. The special set of shows streamed live from The State Theatre in the band’s hometown of Portland, Maine, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the venue. This year’s in-person edition of Ghostland has been postponed to Labor Day Weekend, September 3rd and 4th, 2021, and will feature performances from The Ghost of Paul Revere, Deer Tick, The Mallett Brothers Band, and Bell Systems.
The Ghost of Paul Revere recently released their third full-length studio album, Good At Losing Everything. PRESS HERE to listen and HERE to watch the official video for lead single “Love At Your Convenience.” The band's dynamic distillation of folk, bluegrass, rock, and alternative music shines on the new album. It’s a collection that finds the Maine-based band firing on all cylinders as they explore themes of triumph, loss, satisfaction, heartbreak and love. Good At Losing Everything is fueled by shimmering piano, sweeping guitar, soaring harmonies and punctuated by unrestrained rock ambition. More info on limited edition merch bundles can be found HERE.
Since forming in 2011, the band has created a following that has propelled them from a local to a national level, tallying 15 million+ 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’ve performed alongside The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, The Revivalists, Bela Fleck, and The Infamous Stringdusters, sold out countless gigs, appeared at major festivals nationwide: Newport Folk, Austin City Limits, Winter WonderGrass, BottleRock Napa, Shaky Knees, Okeechobee, and Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, and garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, American Songwriter, Relix, Boston Globe, AXS, No Depression 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 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.
