Ghost of Paul Revere
Ghost of Paul Revere
Born on the banks of the Saco River, brothers in all but name, the Ghost of Paul Revere is Maine's holler-folk band. A powerful, energetic, non-traditional American folk band that’s renowned for harmony fueled, heart-pounding performances full of songs with unique identities that remain undeniably the Ghost of Paul Revere.

Formed around childhood friends Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry, joined by Matt Young on harmonica, the Ghost of Paul Revere played their first show together in 2011 at a tiny bar in Portland, Maine. Now, they play across the nation, bringing holler-folk into houses, bars, and music halls. They have shared the stage with the Avett Brothers, The Travelin’ McCourys, Brown Bird, Spirit Family Reunion, Darlingside, as well as members of Greensky Bluegrass, the Infamous Stringdusters, and Old Crow Medicine Show.

Their critically acclaimed, Billboard charting full length album Believe, as well as their two EPs North and Field Notes Vol. 1, have continually been the top selling local albums in Maine and New Hampshire for more than four years. The Ghost of Paul Revere has since sold out Port City Music Hall, Stone Mountain Arts Center, and the Strand Theater multiple times, won Best In Maine at the 2014 New England Music Awards, were an official showcase artist at Folk Alliance International 2015 and made their Newport Folk Festival debut in August 2015. They capped off 2015 with an electrifying headline performance on New Year's eve at Portland's State Theatre in front of 1,600 enraptured fans.

In 2016, amidst touring nationally, they returned to the studio to craft their second full length album, engineered by Jonathan Wyman at Halo Studios and mastered by Adam Ayan of Gateway Mastering. The album is expected to be released in early 2017.
Ladybird
Ladybird
Hatched from a front-porch jam session, LADYBIRD bathes old-time favorites and new originals in a cocktail of sepia-toned dobro licks, heaven-sent harmonies, and an organic acoustic sound. United by a love of American intervals and pure, clean melodies, Ladybird takes listeners from the streets of Philadelphia to the climbs of Appalachia with soaring ease. Their self-titled EP joins the gals with local rocker Michael Southerton (Song Dogs) to present four traditional songs with new takes, paying homage to the songs that let Ladybird take flight while looking forward to the future.
The White Cheddar Boys
Huey McBanjo, Russ McNasty, Ovi McHorta, Dave McAwesomeness - four boys from Philadelphia playin' old timey folk/bluegrass/appalachian goodness!
