Me and Paul Revere – Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers

Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers entertained an enthusiastic impromptu audience in the courtyard of the Paul Revere House with their hit song, “Me and Paul Revere” on Memorial Day, May 28, 2012.

After reading a book about how the “Midnight Ride of Paul Revere” story had become embellished over time, Steve Martin wrote “Me and Paul Revere” to represent the true story of what happened that night … from the point of view of Paul Revere’s horse!

Paul Revere, an American silversmith and engraver, was born December 21, 1734 and died May 10, 1818. A patriot in the American Revolution, he is known for his famous ride alerting the Colonial militia to the approach of British forces before the battles of Lexington and Concord. He was immortalized in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow‘s poem “Paul Revere’s Ride.”
