8th Annual Massachusetts Walking Tour Concert

Founded by songwriting duo Mark Mandeville and Rianne Richards, the 8th Annual Massachusetts Walking Tour will be coming this year to the Blackstone Valley, performing 10 free community concerts while traversing the state on foot.  The musicians actually walk with their instruments and camping gear from town to town, performing concerts after 8-13 miles of hiking roads and trailways. The Massachusetts Walking Troupe, including veteran members Mark Kilianski (guitar, banjo) and Amy Alvey (fiddle), will be hiking from concert to concert using the Blackstone Valley’s many recreational trails. The Bellingham Library is pleased that it has been chosen as one of their concert venues. This concert will be held in the Bellingham Library’s community room, and is suitable for all ages.  Please register.

In addition to evening concerts, the troupe will also be organizing a series of short group hikes wherein the community will be invited to meet up with the Massachusetts Walking Tour as they travel between towns. For more information on the walking tour events please visit www.masswalkingtour.org.

This program is sponsored by a grant from the Bellingham Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
