Holler folk trio The Ghost Of Paul Revere has announced Almost Ghostland, a virtual edition of the band’s annual Labor Day Weekend Ghostland Festival. The three-day, four-show virtual concert experience will stream live from Portland, ME’s State Theatre via Nugs.net.
Almost Ghostland will kick off on Thursday, September 3rd at 9 p.m. ET with a live debut performance of the band’s third full-length studio album, Good At Losing Everything, due out on Friday, August 28th. Friday, September 4th will see the band perform a set of rarities and fan requests. Saturday, September 5th will feature two shows: a “Ghost & Friends” matinee featuring past and future Ghostland artists like Sister Sparrow, The Mallett Brothers Band, and Bell Systems as well as an evening “Ghost Plays The Hits” set.
Single-day tickets for Almost Ghostland are available for $15. A discounted, bundle of all four shows is also available for $45. Subscribers to the band’s Patreon page will also receive a special discount code. In keeping with Ghostland’s tradition of community spirit, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Portland’s State Theatre.
The Ghost Of Paul Revere—comprised of Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry—founded Ghostland in 2014 as a celebration of the natural beauty and communal spirit of their hometown and home state of Maine. The state of Maine has even officially embraced the spirit of Ghostland by declaring the band’s song, “Ballad of The 20th Maine“, the Official State Ballad in 2019.
The 2020 in-person edition of Ghostland Festival has been postponed to Labor Day Weekend 2021 as the world continues to respond to the pandemic, with artists like Deer Tick, The Mallett Brothers Band, and Bell Systems already signed on to perform. While we wait, Almost Ghostland will ensure that spirit of the festival continues this year.
