Atwater-Donnelly

Award-winning performers Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly present traditional American and Celtic folk music and dance. With gorgeous vocals, Aubrey and Elwood play guitar, dulcimer, mandolin, whistle, harmonica banjo, bones, limberjacks, and other surprises, including Appalachian clogging, contra and square dance, and French Canadian footwork. This performing group also teaches at all levels and magically connects with student, creating quite a stir when they appear in school communities. They travel extensively to collect and perform their music and dance and have performed throughout the United States, Canada, and British Isles since 1988. They have thirteen recordings and seven books to their credit. Atwater-Donnelly is available in various forms: solo, duo, trio, and band.
