PORTLAND - Holler folk trio The Ghost of Paul Revere have announced the lineup for the 2020 edition of their annual Ghostland festival, scheduled to take place on Labor Day weekend, September 4 and 5, in two Portland venues.

Ghostland was founded in 2014 as a way for The Ghost of Paul Revere to share and celebrate the natural beauty of Maine and the spirit of Portland with fans from around the country.

The weekend is scheduled to open with a unique concert at Port City Music Hall on Friday, September 4, where the band will play one traditional set of songs pulled from their own catalog, along with a second set of carefully selected cover songs.

Tickets for the Port City Music Hall show are only available with the purchase of a two-day GA or VIP pass to Ghostland, and are available from the band’s website.

Saturday will see the band share the stage at Thompson’s Point with four other bands

The Ghost of Paul Revere – Griffin Sherry (guitar), Max Davis (banjo) and Sean McCarthy (bass) will be joined by alternative folk rockers Deer Tick, hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, Maine’s indie Americana-rockers The Mallett Brothers Band, Mipso, from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and Portland-based Bell Systems, featuring Spencer Albee and Geneviève Beaudoin. The duo describes their music as “thoughtfully irreverent pop music.”

Ghostland festival-goers may purchase a Saturday single-day ticket for $41 in advance, or $46 the day of show, or a two-day GA pass for $86 or a VIP pass for $121, which will include a meet and greet with the members of The Ghost of Paul Revere, and access to an exclusive viewing area at Thompson’s Point, with access to a private bar. VIP pass-holders will also receive a signed poster and other items.

One dollar from the sale of every ticket will be donated to the sTAY Strong Foundation, founded last year in memory of Taylor Steeves, a close friend to the members of The Ghost of Paul Revere. The foundation provides assistance to those affected by genetic forms of lung cancer. More information about the foundation can be found at www.staystrongfoundation.org .

The Ghost of Paul Revere formed in 2011 and made their national television debut in 2018 on Conan O’Brien’s TBS show. Last year, the band’s song “Ballad of the 20th Maine” became Maine’s official state ballad. The band’s latest release is “Field Notes, Vol. 2,” released last August, and they say they are preparing to release new music this year.
