Center for the Arts in Homer

April 2, The Ghost of Paul Revere

8 pm, Center for the Arts, 72 S. Main St., Homer. Are they bluegrass? Roots? Folk? Indie? The answer is a resounding, foot-stomping yes. The Ghost of Paul Revere brings their powerful three-part harmony, energetic performance, and decidedly non-traditional interpretation of traditional American music. The Ghost hit the top five of the Billboard Northeast chart. The band has since sold out several prominent regional venues, won Best in Maine at the 2014 New England Music Awards, and was an official showcase artist at Folk Alliance International 2015. Come prepared to holler, stomp, and feel the floorboards shake. General admission tickets for the performance is $8 and Under 18 are Free.
