Join us as we welcome Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards for an intimate concert at the historic Stanley-Whitman House (37 High St. Farmington, CT).
// ABOUT THE MUSICIAN //
Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards are clearly inheritors of a timeless legacy, creating music that is both original and evocative of a rich tradition. Blending distinctive voices and a wide range of accompaniment (guitar, harmonica, ukulele, clarinet, penny whistle, electric bass), their songs have been well-received by audiences around the eastern United States and Canada since 2010. Transcending the genre of folk Americana, their music echoes inspiration from traditional folk duos and singer/songwriters like Ian & Sylvia, Kate Wolf and Neil Young – combining beautiful harmonies and a lyrical intensity, while establishing a unique sound of their own.
// ABOUT THE MUSIC IN THE TAVERN SERIES //
The Stanley-Whitman House's Music in the Tavern Series presents artists and shows differently than a club show- instead our house concert is more up close and personal. All of the artifice is stripped away. No stage, no dressing room, no barrier between the performer and the audience. The SWH Music in the Tavern series is more like being on-step-closer to the way music was intended- an artist traveling from town to town, telling stories and making friends. Come check this out!
// ABOUT THE MUSEUM //
Stanley-Whitman House is a living history center and museum that teaches through the collection, preservation, research, and dynamic interpretation of the history and culture of early Farmington. Programs, events, classes, and exhibits encourage visitors of all ages to immerse themselves in history by doing, acting, questioning, and engaging in Colonial life and the ideas that formed the foundation of that culture.
