WALDOBORO — The Waldo Theatre, along with State Theatre Presents/Crobo LLC and Rising Sun Presents, hosts a performance by Griffin William Sherry (Ghost of Paul Revere) with opener Dominic Lavoie at The Waldo, 916 Main St., Friday, Feb. 10, 2023, at 8 p.m.

Living somewhere in-between modern catharsis and American myth, Griffin William Sherry’s roots continue to grow strong in the ever-evolving genres of folk, Americana and rock & roll.

Sherry’s music is inspired by his New England rural roots. As such, he cobbles together an inimitable signature style, visceral and heartfelt, loud and passionate, each song taking on a voice of its own.

In 2011, Sherry co-founded the independent band The Ghost of Paul Revere, capturing the hearts and minds of countless fans with a series of acclaimed releases and sold-out shows everywhere. He helped establish his own music festival, performed on national television, and garnered millions of streams. In 2019, his song “The Ballad of the 20th Maine” became the official Maine State Ballad, securing The Ghost of Paul Revere’s place in Maine music history.

In 2022, after writing music for 17 years, Sherry began work on his first solo record, taking a defiant step in a new direction.

Dominic Lavoie is a songwriter, musician and producer who uses music to stay as true to himself and the creative spirit as possible. Ethereal dreams to jarringly clear human experiences dance in his songs; and become real both on stage and through his albums.

Lavoie has shared the stage with Rayland Baxter, Los Lobos, Dr Dog and Guster; and he is as comfortable on stage as he is in the studio, having released seven full lengths albums, two EPs and a self-directed music film.

A limited number of front row seats are available for $50 each. General admission tickets are available for $25 in advance, $30 the day of the event. If this show has not sold out, a limited number of tickets may be available at the box office starting at 7 p.m. when doors open. Concessions, including beer and wine, will be available for purchase.

Assistive listening devices are available at the box office. The Waldo is no longer requiring proof of vaccination, and has shifted to masks optional for all visitors.  More information and tickets for this and other events are available at thewaldotheatre.org.
