If you need some great music and a smile on your face today, we have just the thing for you. Maine's Ghost of Paul Revere has put out a new video for their song "Travel On." The video, shot in and around Portland, is a lovely tribute to The Muppets. The band piles in their van for fun and adventure.  The video is a funny, charming, and Maine-centric re-creation of the song "Movin Right Along" from the iconic Muppet Movie. We have both the Ghost and Muppet versions for you here to contrast and compare.

Take the fork in the road and watch the Ghost of Paul Revere's "1 If By Land, 3 If By Stream" live streaming shows starting April 15th.

When you watch the video, see how many places in and around Portland you can identify. Here's the Ghost of Paul Revere van on Portland's Eastern Prom.

We're betting that you can't watch this awesome video just once; we've been playing it all day in the studio! Our favorite part of the video, other than this tremendous song, is at the very end. We won't spoil it for you...enjoy, and keep your fingers crossed for Ghostland to return someday!

 

If you don't know much about this incredible band, you should know that Ghost of Paul Revere has become one of the most successful bands to come out of Maine. From the Ghost website:

"The band has performed alongside The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, The Revivalists, Bela Fleck, and The Infamous Stringdusters, sold out countless headlining gigs, and appeared at major festivals nationwide: Newport Folk, Austin City Limits, WinterWonderGrass, BottleRock Napa, Shaky Knees, Okeechobee, and Voodoo Music + Arts Experience. The boys took home “Best in Maine” at the New England Music Awards twice, in 2015 and 2019. In 2019, their song, “Ballad Of The 20th Maine”, became the official State Ballad of Maine after being passed unanimously by the Senate and House of Representatives and signed into law by Maine’s Governor, Janet Mills."

Here's the inspiration for Travel On from The Muppets. Brilliant idea Ghost guys!
