Highly acclaimed husband-wife duo, Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly, present delightful programs of traditional American and Celtic folk songs, a capella pieces, old-time gospel songs, dance tunes, and original works. Elwood and Aubrey blend gorgeous and unusual harmonies and play guitar, Appalachian mountain dulcimer, mandolin, tin whistle, harmonica, banjo, bones, spoons, limberjacks, and other surprises including Appalachian clog dancing, French Canadian footwork, and Tap.
Their performance is appealing to all ages, and with humor, audience participation, and a relaxed stage presence, Aubrey and Elwood explain song origins to create a deeper understanding of the music and its cultural history.
The trio is formed when Aubrey and Elwood are joined by Cathy Clasper-Torch. Cathy adds a deeply rich third dimension with fiddle, cello and vocals. The Atwater-Donnelly Trio has become extremely popular in Southern New England. http://www.atwater-donnelly.com/atwater-donnellytrio.htm
