Celtic music group to perform on Sunday

The Jamestown Philomenian Library will host the award-winning Celtic music group Atwater and Donnelly on Sunday, March 6, at 3:30 p.m. in the meeting hall.

The husband-and-wife duo blend traditional American and Celtic folk music and dance, along with original songs and poetry. They use such instruments as the mountain dulcimer, old-time banjo, tin whistle, guitar, limberjack, mandolin and harmonica.

Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly are based out of Foster and have traveled the country for 22 years in the United States, and occasional trips to Ireland, England and Canada. They have produced five books and 10 recordings that receive international airplay.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the library at 423-7280.
