An Evening with Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards

Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards

7:00PM

Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards have been heralded by audiences as well as by veteran folk performers to be next generation of artists like Robin & Linda Williams and Dave Carter & Tracy Grammar. They sing and accompany themselves with delicate precision, delivering their lyrics and dialogue with loving intention.
Since 2010, co-founders Mandeville & Richards have organized an annual non-profit bipedal concert tour of Massachusetts in support of arts and culture for towns throughout the state.

Both artists are products of central Massachusetts mill and factory towns, and for all their national exposure as performing songwriters, they are passionately dedicated to the region and what it has to offer. Each summer for the past nine years they have organized the “Massachusetts Walking Tour” where they hike the roads and trails of the Commonwealth, more than 100 miles in less than two weeks, in support of the arts in local communities along the way. Each evening they stop over in yet another Massachusetts town, putting on a free concert there, along with local performers and fellow artists who accompany them on their journey. These annual two-week treks also raise awareness of the trails and greenways in Massachusetts, using music to make important connections.
