Since 2010, co-founders Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards have organized an annual non-profit bipedal concert tour of Massachusetts in support of arts and culture for towns throughout the state. Each free community concert collaborates with local artists, musicians, educational programs, trail managers and land trust groups to highlight both artistic diversity and recreational land use. With each visit, a community has pulled together and taken part in a dialogue which serves to strengthen local investment in the arts.

This program will include music and the spoken word. 

In 2018, the Massachusetts Walking Tour will be visiting towns along the CT River Paddlers' Trail - hiking and paddling to 11 community concerts between June 15th - June 27th. For more information, please visit www.masswalkingtour.org.
