Folk duo Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards plan to perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 25, at  Old South First Congregational Church, UCC, 235 Main St. in Farmington.
Little by little, those who attend will get to know Mandeville and Richards through their unmistakable vocal harmonies, poetic lyrics and down-to-earth personae. They are a married musical couple based out of Webster, Massachusetts. These prolific and hard working Massachusetts-based artists have contributed over 17 albums within their first decade and toured consistently throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Their songs reflect personal experiences as factory workers, teachers, community organizers, and natives of post-industrial mill towns in central Massachusetts. The memories of days gone by and toils of history can be better remembered through songs such as “That Old Machine” or “Winds of Change.”

Accompanying themselves on guitar, harmonica, ukulele, penny whistle, electric bass, and most uniquely clarinet, their live performances are both musically captivating and spiritually uplifting as audiences are carefully balanced between serious songs and humorous commentary.

Tickets cost $20 for adults, $15 for students and senior citizens.
