REIGNING CATS & DOGS! MORE INFO
Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards have contributed their first decade to the legacy of American folk and country music, sharing emotively intelligent lyrics, unmistakable vocal harmonies, and a unique blend of instrumentation with audiences throughout the US and Canada. The songs poetically reflect their personal experience as factory workers, teachers, community organizers and natives of postindustrial mill towns in central Massachusetts. Accompanying themselves on guitar, harmonica, ukulele, penny whistle, electric bass, and most uniquely clarinet, their live performance is often Punctuated by humorous commentary.

“I would sit in my room and dream of someday being on stage, always thinking I wasn’t good enough until I found Workshop 13. The welcome that I received from these amazing people was one that is indescribable. For the first time in my life I feel alive! Workshop13 has given me a stage to shine and made my dreams come true. Thank you!”
– June Eaton
I’ve always had a passion for art, but unfortunately, the ability to paint was not something I was born with. Taking classes at Workshop13 has brought me joy in many ways. I’ve made friends while creating work that has evolved into something I can be proud of. My artistic journey has given me confidence to share a hidden part of me. Painting brings joy and peace to my life.
