Holler folk trio The Ghost of Paul Revere have announced “Live At The Drive-In,” a concert series that will be hosted at the Narrow Gauge Cinema in Farmington, ME from Thursday, June 25th to Sunday, June 28th. Tickets for “Live At The Drive-In” are on-sale today starting at 12pm ET. Doors will open each day at 7pm ET. Farmington-based Mexican restaurant Uno Mas will also be selling food and beverages for concertgoers next door. Purchase tickets here.
Sharing the band’s excitement for the shows, The Ghost of Paul Revere’s Griffin Sherry said, “We’ve always been a do-it-yourself kind of band. From our records to our festival, we’re driven by it. As the live music landscape changes and transforms, we’ve had to transform too. After four long months, we’re ready to put on one hell of a show, in a totally new format. It’ll be live, and that’s a start. Let’s get weird, Maine.”
Concertgoers can purchase tickets for the shows for $110 per car. In order to comply with the CDC guidelines regarding social distancing, audience members will be asked to stay in their designated car area except when using the restroom or purchasing food and beverages. Fans are also asked to wear a mask and stay six feet apart from crowd members when they are outside of their cars.
The “Live At The Drive-In” concert series is the latest event from The Ghost of Paul Revere to celebrate the communal spirit of their home state. Their annual festival, Ghostland, celebrates Maine’s natural beauty and sense of community with music and great food. In fact, the state has embraced the spirit of camaraderie Ghostland embodies and declared the band’s song the “Ballad Of The 20th Maine” as the Official State Ballad of Maine last year.

This year’s Ghostland festival has been postponed to Labor Day Weekend, September 3rd and 4th, 2021, and will feature performances from The Ghost of Paul Revere, Deer Tick, The Mallett Brothers Band, and Bell Systems.
Before the release of their 2019 EP, Field Notes, Vol. 2, the band showcased the progression of their style and signature sound with the 2017 album Monarch and songs including “Wild Child,” which has garnered over 1.8 million streams on Spotify. The Ghost of Paul Revere are also gearing up to release new music. Stay tuned for more to come this year!
