March 21, 7:PM Atwater~Donnelly Trio – Postponed
Back by popular demand Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly add to their previous performances the talents of Cathy Clasper-Torch on violin, cello and Chinese erhu.
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, 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. And, because they have such an extensive repertoire, special programs and workshops can be tailored for festivals, schools, colleges, libraries, women’s history, and holidays.
Aubrey and Elwood are joined by Cathy Clasper-Torch, who adds a deeply rich third dimension with fiddle, cello, Chinese erhu and vocals. Since 2003, the Atwater~Donnelly Trio has become a driving force on the regional folk circuit.
Based in Warren, Rhode Island, Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly have traveled extensively for thirty years in the United States, with occasional trips to Ireland, England, and Canada, to perform as well as find their songs and dances one by one. They have produced seven books, thirteen recordings that receive international airplay, and were featured in a documentary by son, Uriah Donnelly.
