“Intelligent lyrics set against attractive and uncomplicated folk-y melodies in the best tradition of Americana; if ever two voices were meant to harmonize, it’s these two.” – Dave Harley (UK 2019)
Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards
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.
Their latest release, Live in Manitoba (Nobody’s Favorite Records 2018), is a collection of songs and short introductions from a thirteen date house concert tour of Manitoba, Canada organized through Home Routes / Chemin Chez Nous. This album demonstrates Mark and Raianne’s close connection to their
audience, as well as musical versatility. The track list includes selections from both studio albums, covers of Tom Petty’s Walls and Neil Young’s Unknown Legend, and two previously unreleased songs.
