The 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, and limberjacks. An Atwater-Donnelly concert typically offers other surprises, including some Appalachian clog dancing and French Canadian footwork. Their performances are appealing to all ages. 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.
At Sandywoods, Aubrey and Elwood will be joined by a third member, Cathy Clasper-Torch. Cathy adds a deeply rich third dimension with fiddle, cello, and vocals. Since 2003, the Atwater-Donnelly Trio has become extremely popular throughout Southern New England. Cathy has absorbed much of the Atwater-Donnelly repertoire and is now a staple in Atwater-Donnelly regional concerts, knowing just where to add an exquisite cello line, an exuberant burst of old-time fiddle, and a third and utterly unique voice.
Don't miss this wonderful evening of music, with special pricing for children.
