Maine-grown, folk outfit The Ghost of Paul Revere has confirmed their return to the Top Hat in Missoula on Friday, November 15, 2019. They’ll be supported by Portland, Oregon’s soul folk rock sextet, Ezra Bell.
“We grew up listening to Radiohead and the Beatles and Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd,” says Griffin Sherry, guitarist/singer in The Ghost Of Paul Revere. “Everyone assumed we were a bluegrass band because we were playing these traditional instruments, but we weren’t writing traditional music. We were just writing songs with the instruments we had.” Call-and-response melodies, sing-along hooks, and densely layered harmonies — those are a few ways The Ghost of Paul Revere describes their self labeled genre of “holler folk.”
In 2014, the trio released their full length debut album Believe, which was followed by their Field Notes, Vol. 1 EP in 2015. Their sophomore album, Monarch, came out in 2017. This year, they released Field Notes, Vol. 2, which includes a variety of covers, new originals, and live takes from 2018’s Ghostland event.
Their work has earned them much praise. The Boston Globe raved that they “create the type of music for which festivals are made,” while No Depression said they “prove that superior roots music can come from anywhere,” and Dispatch Magazine wrote that they possess not only “the chops, but the heart to reach their audience and leave an undeniable impression.”
