THE GHOST OF PAUL REVERE AT THE SPIRE CENTER
WHEN: June 1, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.
WHERE: 25 ½ Court St in downtown Plymouth
PLYMOUTH—See The Ghost of Paul Revere live on stage at the Spire Center on Saturday. The Jason Spooner band opens the show. “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.”
The result is a sound that the Portland, Maine-based band describes as “holler folk,” not because it involves a lot of hollering, per se, but because it invokes the rich communal tradition of field hollers, with their call-and-response melodies, sing-along hooks, and densely layered harmonies. That sense of musical camaraderie is essential to everything The Ghost of Paul Revere does, and nowhere is it more evident than their sophomore album, ”Monarch.’
