A truly exciting development in the Atwater~Donnelly history is the Atwater~Donnelly Trio. Joining Aubrey and Elwood is Cathy Clasper-Torch, a remarkable fiddler, cellist and vocalist who, in a word, blends.
Cathy Clasper-Torch has played and performed on piano, violin, viola, and er-hu (Chinese violin) since childhood. A resident of Rhode Island, she teaches piano and violin, and performs/records with several bands and musicians in the area. With a background in classical violin and jazz piano, Cathy adeptly weaves a love of harmonies and improvisation into the music.
Cathy is in great demand in the Southern New England folk circuit for her easy stage presence, virtuosity, and improvisational skills. Over the last few years Cathy has absorbed much of the Atwater~Donnelly repertoire and is now a staple in Atwater~Donnelly regional concerts, contributing a deeply rich third dimension and mastery, knowing just where to add an exquisite cello line, an exuberant burst of old-time fiddle, and a third and utterly unique voice.
The Atwater~Donnelly Trio is not to be missed! Check the performance calendar for trio concerts.
