The next concert at John Henry’s Hammer takes place Saturday Nov. 17, and features the folk duo Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards. Music starts at 7:30, with doors opening at 7:00.
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.
The following Saturday, Nov. 24, John Henry’s Hammer presents a special concert: Duke Levine & The Super Sweet Sounds Of The 70s
