2018 Massachusetts Walking Tour Concert

Since 2010, co-founders Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards have organized an annual non-profit bipedal concert tour of Massachusetts in support of arts and culture for towns throughout the state. Each free community concert collaborates with local artists, musicians, educational programs, trail managers and land trust groups to highlight both artistic diversity and recreational land use. 

Carrying approximately 40-50 lbs of gear and instruments, the MWT Troupe including Mark Mandeville (guitar/banjo), Raianne Richards (ukulele/penny whistle), Mark Kilianski (guitar/banjo), Amy Alvey (fiddle), Vito Caccavelli (guitar) and Kristen Sykes (Ukulele and Director of Operations for the AMC) will be paddling down the CT River Paddlers Trail and hiking into towns along its western bank using recreational trails and exploring State Reservations, Mass Audubon and DCR properties. In addition to evening concerts, the troupe will also be organizing a series of short group hikes, which are open to the public. Daily routes can be found at www.masswalkingtour.org
