GIRLS GUNS AND GLORY and GHOST OF PAUL REVERE

Double Bill on the Strand stage!

Girls Guns and Glory

For the past eight years, Boston’s rising stars Girls Guns and Glory have been making a name for themselves through relentless touring (about 200 gigs a year worldwide), the release of four critically acclaimed records, a slew of local awards, including being the Boston Music Awards first act of its genre to win Act of the Year, and international awards (Independent Artist of the Year at the French Country Music Awards).

The foursome (Ward Hayden on vocals/guitar, Paul Dilley on electric and upright bass/piano, Josh Kiggans on drums/percussion, and Chris Hersch on lead guitar/banjo) finds musical inspiration from early ’50s rock ‘n’ roll icons such as Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, and Buddy Holly, as well as country greats like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.

GIRLS GUNS AND GLORY took home Americana Artist of the Year at the 2013 Boston Music Awards and Ward Hayden won for Male Vocalist of the Year. And, GIRLS GUNS AND GLORY is currently on the road…as usual!

One of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need To Know” – “Modern-day Buddy Holly plus Dwight Yoakam divided by the Mavericks…Think-y, soulful lyrics paired with a beat you can dance to. —Rolling Stone

Imagine Lyle Lovett and Chris Isaak paying tribute to classic American rock n' roll from Elvis, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Roy Orbison.

With all this strum and thwang, it's hard to believe Hayden - who recalls smooth talker like Chirs Isaak and Dwight Yoakum, with a dash of Buddy Holly's jumpy, hiccupy style - hails from Scituate and not the South....Girls Guns and Glory demonstrates a mastery of moods and roots styles that transcends regional boundaries. - The Boston Globe

 

 

Ghost of Paul Revere

Maine's holler-folk band has built their songs around powerful three-part harmonies, energetic performances, and a non-traditional way of interpreting traditional American music. From folk to foot-stomping bluegrass, THE GHOST draws from a broad array of influences including Elmore James and the Beatles, to Tom Waits and more. Their robust live shows have quickly attained legendary status.

The GHOST was formed in 2012 around childhood friends Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry, along with Matt Young. 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 released in January 2014 and 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. The GHOST OF PAUL REVERE has since sold out Port City Music Hall, Stone Mountain Arts Center, and the Strand Theatre several times, won Best In Maine at the 2014 New England Music Awards, and were an official showcase artist at Folk Alliance International 2015.
