Ballroom Thieves in concert at Camden Opera House
The Camden Opera House will host yet another Maine-based talent, the Ballroom Thieves. Back by popular demand, the Ballroom Thieves are renowned for their handsome harmonies and nimble, sturdy acoustic melodies. Guitarist Martin Earley, cellist Calin “Callie” Peters, and drummer Devin Mauch will be once again onstage at the Camden Opera House for this not-to-be-missed performance dubbed a "rock band in a folk suit.”
Following two EPs, the group released their full-length debut A Wolf in the Doorway in 2015. Between marathons of touring, 2016’s Deadeye would spawn a string of fan favorites. They claimed real estate on prime Spotify playlists (e.g. “Your Favorite Coffeehouse,” “Relax & Unwind,” “Morning Acoustic”) with “Bees” cracking 10 million streams on the platform. Along the way, they sold out shows and delivered standout performances at festivals such as Boston Calling and Newport Folk Festival, while landing features at NPR, Baeble Music, Boston Globe, Paste, Earmilk, and many others.
Originally from Boston, the Ballroom Thieves are renowned for their unmistakable talent and their sound, a constant harmonious blend of instruments and vocals that build upon each other. With an originality that will pulse through you, the band plays romping folk with a masterful overlay of emotive vocals, soaring cello, and powerful drum beats, mining immense melodies and hypnotic hooks from personal stories on their 2018 EP, Paper Crown (Nettwerk Records).
More details on the EP are forthcoming, but their Nettwek debut single makes one thing clear: the Ballroom Thieves are stronger together than ever, and they’re ready to confront both inner and outer demons with the assurance of a band that’s only begun to rise. The Ballroom Thieves are winners of the 2017 Boston Music Awards for Folk Artist of the Year.
