Atwater-Donnelly Duo at the Newport Public Library
By Newport Public Library (Rhode Island)

Atwater-Donnelly Duo returns to the library to perform a one-hour concert of Traditional American & Celtic Folk Music and Dance.

The highly acclaimed husband-wife duo, Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly, will present a delightful program 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 and French Canadian footwork.

This 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.

Seating is first-come, first-served. Registration is not required.

Held in the Friends Program room on the lower level.
