UNITY — One of Maine’s most popular homegrown bands will return to the Unity College Center for the Performing Arts for a 7 p.m. concert Friday, Jan. 29.

Born on the banks of the Saco River, brothers in all but name, The Ghost of Paul Revere is Maine’s “holler-folk band” with a sound built around powerful three-part harmonies, energetic performances, and a non-traditional way of interpreting traditional American music.

The Ghost was formed by childhood friends Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry in 2011 with Matt Young. Since then, they have shared the stage with Brown Bird, Spirit Family Reunion, Sean Hoots, Will Dailey, Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear, and other nationally touring acts.

Their critically acclaimed debut EP, “North,” released in the summer of 2012, quickly became one of the best-selling local albums in Maine and New Hampshire for 2013. Their first full length album, “Believe”, was recorded live with Jonathan Wyman at Halo Studios and, when released in January 2014, it quickly went on to hit the Billboard Northeast chart. It was the best selling local album in Maine and New Hampshire for 10 months straight and continues to be in the top five more than a year later.

Tickets cost $15 and available at the door.
