Local venue to host nationally beloved folk group
Thursday, Jan. 30 at 8 p.m.—KILLINGTON—The Pickle Barrel Nightclub is excited to host The Ghost of Paul Revere, a “holler-folk” quartet. The Portland, Maine natives will be live on the stage of the house that rocks Killington to kick off the weekend.
Bringing bluegrass and all-around Americana vibes to Killington, The Ghost of Paul Revere embodies the essence of originality with hints of traditional hues resembling Radiohead and Pink Floyd. The Northeastern group’s fame was brought to light after their debut performance at Rhode Island’s Newport Folk Festival. This led to the group’s first full-length album in 2014. The adventurous quartet is composed of Max Davis on banjo, Sean McCarthy on bass, Griffin Sherry on guitar, and more recently, Ben Cosgrove. All four musicians lend their voices to their art which invokes the rich communal tradition of field hollers, call-and-response melodies, sing-along hooks, and densely layered harmonies.
The Ghost of Paul Revere was featured on the TBS late-night talk show, “Conan,” in 2018 and has since created a slingshot to success. The band aims to hit fans right in the feelings, a success since the band’s inception in 2011.
Fans can join The Ghost of Paul Revere at the Pickle Barrel Nightclub Thursday, Jan. 30 by purchasing tickets at Jax Food & Games or picklebarrelnightclub.com. This is a 21+ only show.
