Every performance is surprisingly different and always entertaining, exciting and educational with the award-winning duo Atwater~Donnelly, who provide a unique and thrilling blend of traditional American and Celtic folk music and dance, along with original songs and poetry.

The highly praised husband-wife duo blends gorgeous vocals with an astounding array of instruments including the mountain dulcimer, old-time banjo, tin whistle, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, limberjacks, feet and more.

Also not to be missed are Atwater~Donnelly Trio shows where Aubrey and Elwood collaborate with Cathy Clasper-Torch on vocals, violin, cello and Chinese erhu, or Erin Lobb Mason on vocals and double bass. The Atwater~Donnelly Band shows include all four of us. Lastly, another band combination is Jerimoth Hill - a six-member old-time gospel band.

Based in Warren, Rhode Island, Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly have traveled extensively for thirty-five 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 nine books, fourteen recordings that receive international airplay, and were featured in a documentary by son, Uriah Donnelly, The Passion of Atwater-Donnelly.

Atwater and Donnelly are in the performing directories for the
