Sunday afternoon concert at the library

Atwater-Donnelly, an island favorite from the Jamestown Summer Concert Series, will bring their sounds to the Jamestown library this Sunday, March 1, at 3 p.m.

An award-winning duo, Atwater Donnelly performs a unique and thrilling blend of traditional American and Celtic folk music and dance, along with original songs and poetry.

The husband-wife duo blends gorgeous vocals with an astonishing array of instruments including the mountain dulcimer, old-time banjo, tin whistle, guitar, limberjack, mandolin, harmonica, feet and more. They often collaborate with other musicians, Cathy Clasper- Torch, Heidi and John Cerrigione, and Uriah Donnelly; and Irish stepdancer Kevin Doyle; and can be seen performing solo, as a duo, trio, four-person band, or the six-member old-time gospel band, Jerimoth Hill.

Based in Foster, Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly have traveled extensively for twenty years in the United States, and occasional trips to Ireland, England, and Canada, to perform as well as find their songs and dances one by one. They have produced five books and 10 recordings that receive international airplay.

This Friends of the Jamestown Library program is free and open to the public.
