What a beautiful bright, sunny morning greeted our musicians as they set off at the start of the 2019 edition of the Massachusetts Walking Tour.
Milford TV Cable cameras were on hand in Milford at the new IHOP on Route 109 to interview the founders of the tour, Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards. A number of folks showed up to join them on this first leg of the journey. (IHOP in Milford welcomes trail users to their back parking area, immediately adjacent to the Upper Charles Trail in Milford)
The music is new for many (most–maybe all of us) so you may hear the strains of tunes being sung as they walk along the Upper Charles Trail that will be shared starting tonight at the Holliston Public Library.
It’s easy to be part of the event, but you’ll need to show up. Check out the Massachusetts walking tour website for locations to take easy walks with them each day, and information about where each day’s concert will take place.
