Kathleen Mellen's Best Bets: Walking troubadours in South Hadley; Roald Dahl celebration in Amherst

Published: 9/8/2016 1:56:48 PM


Walking troubadours Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards just returned from a community-concert trek — something they’ve done six times before. During this year’s 7th Annual Massachusetts Walking Tour, the duo organized and performed 18 concerts in 18 days — from Provincetown to Swansea — walking 144 miles, from gig to gig, carrying their instruments and camping gear.

The two will perform Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the South Hadley Public Library, with bandmates Doug Williamson and Peter Hart. The library is at 2 Canal St. in South Hadley.


“The Roald Dahl Splendiferous Showdown” tour bus visits the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art Saturday at 2 p.m. for a fast-paced, interactive game show for families. Expect improvised shenanigans, some inspired by kids in the audience. 125 Bay Road, Amherst. www.carlemuseum.org
