American Folk and Country Music Concert with Mark Mandeville & Raianne RichardsFriday November 6, 2020
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM
Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards have contributed their first decade to the legacy of American folk and country music, sharing emotively intelligent lyrics, unmistakable vocal harmonies, and a unique blend of instrumentation with audiences throughout the US and Canada. The original songs poetically reflect their personal experience as factory workers, teachers, community organizers and natives of postindustrial mill towns in central Massachusetts. Accompanying themselves on guitar, ukulele, penny whistle, electric bass, and most uniquely clarinet, along with Studio musicians Doug Williamson (piano, guitar, mandolin, upright bass), Peter Hart (pedal steel, guitar) their live performance is often punctuated by humorous commentary.
Registration preferred but not necessary.
This concert is supported by a grant from the Bellingham Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
