Old South Church Concert Series welcomes Mark Mandeville & Rainne Richards for their first appearance at Old South Church on Thursday, May 25th. This Massachusetts based duo, who summer in Temple, Maine has a longstanding regional fanbase with their many years of appearances in Maine.

Mandeville &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 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, harmonica, mandolin, ukulele, penny whistle, electric bass, and most uniquely clarinet, their live performance is often punctuated by humorous commentary. 

Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards have been respected locally since 2010 for organizing 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. 

Doors will open at 6:30pm and the concert kicks off at 7pm. Tickets are $20 adults, $15 seniors (65 and +) and students.  Tickets can be reserved by calling 207-4919-5919; link to online ticket purchase at www.farmingtonucc.org on the News & Events section or on Old South Church Concert Series Facebook event section, or at the door.  Old South Church is handicapped accessible at the Main Street entrance.  Face masks are optional.
