Massachusetts Walking Tour Concert at Seekonk Library
Seekonk, MA – Join us at the library for our first concert in the Meadows of the Summer: the Massachusetts Walking Tour Concert. The concert will be held on June 28th at 6 pm in the Meadows. The concert is rain or shine and will be held in the library Large Meeting Room in the event of rain. This program is funded by a grant from the Seekonk Cultural Council (a local agency), part of the Massachusetts Cultural Council (a state agency).
Since 2010, local songwriters Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards have organized a string of free community concerts each June to showcase artists and musicians across their home state of Massachusetts - this tour is traveled completely on foot while carrying roughly 50lbs. of gear and instruments. In addition to concerts, the MWT also organizes daily public hikes to help raise awareness of recreational properties statewide working together with larger organizations like the National Park Service, Appalachian Mountain Club, DCR, the Trustees, and local trails volunteers. Mandeville and Richards spend much of the year arranging appropriate community venues for each concert (i.e. public libraries, town commons, meeting halls, senior centers) and inviting local performers from each town to participate in the two hour programs. The folk coffeehouse style concerts offer a respectful listening environment for artists young and old, concluding with a feature set of music by the Massachusetts Walking Tour ensemble.
