Ghost of Paul Revere Back on The Criterion Stage
Bar Harbor- Maine-based award-winning holler folk band Ghost of Paul Revere will once again take The Criterion stage on Friday, January 19th at 8 p.m. with new songs off the recently released album “Monarch.”
The band, now comprised of banjo player Max Davis, bassist Sean McCarthy and guitarist Griffin Sherry, tours extensively with over 200 performances each year, including an appearance at Newport Folk Festival.
The band’s new album “Monarch” builds on the success of the 2014 debut full-length, “Believe” and the 2015 EP “Field Notes Vol. 1.”
“Every other record has just been the three of us in a room with microphones until we got a take we liked,” explained Sherry. “We approached this one differently. It was the first time we did a lot of arranging and writing in the studio. We decided we’d worry about learning how to present the songs live after we’d recorded everything instead of the other way around.”
This performance, the third Ghost of Paul Revere show at The Criterion, was made possible by the generosity of Side Street Cafe. Tickets are $25 in the balcony, $20 in the orchestra and $15 for students in the orchestra. Seating is general admission within section. Tickets will be available to Criterion members on Thursday, November 9 at 10 a.m. and to the general public on Friday, November 10 at 10 a.m. at criteriontheatre.org.
