Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards on Around This Town, Oct 20
Massachusetts duo Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards will stop by the WTJU studios Tuesday afternoon, October 20, at 4 for a visit to Around This Town. In the midst of a national tour, Mark & Raianne will be at The Garage in downtown Charlottesville that same evening (details).
Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards are a folk duo from Massachusetts who sing songs which resonate with the lover of Americana and old country music, commanding familiar traditional melodies and poignant, introspective lyrics, and backing them with delicate arrangements on ukulele, clarinet, guitar and banjo. They began in the basements, coffee shops and art spaces of New England, and have since tested the stages of more traditional folk music venues, colleges, living rooms and bar rooms from Boston to Austin, Denver to Nashville, Asheville to Portland, and back ’round again. Hundreds of concerts have been given and thousands of records have been sold, all on their own steam and without the support of major industry assistance.
