Back Room Radio Hour

Brand new season, brand new venue. The Back Room Radio Hour begins a new chapter with some old friends.

Host Bill Ward welcomes Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards to the On Deck Stage at the Chadakoin Club in downtown Jamestown.

The venerable live music radio show returns November 8 at 7 p.m. in Jamestown’s newest live music venue.

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.

Show begins at 7 p.m., but audience needs to be seated by 6:30 p.m. Admission is free, but please make reservations by emailing or calling (716) 753–2800.
