Free concert Sunday will feature folk duo

Atwater Donnelly will perform at the Jamestown Summer Concert Series on Sunday, July 15, at 6:30 p.m. at East Ferry. Atwater Donnelly is a Rhode Island-based folk music duo comprised of Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly.

The two musicians met in 1987 while volunteering at Stone Soup Coffee House in Providence. They have been singing together ever since. The duo will present a concert of traditional Celtic ballads, dance tunes, a cappella pieces and sea shanties, as well as original works. They blend unusual harmonies, and accompany themselves on guitar, mountain dulcimer, tin whistle, harmonica, banjo, spoons, bones, Australian monkey pods, rainsticks and other surprises.

This concert is for all ages and audience participation is encouraged. Admission is free. In case of rain, the concert will be held across the street at the Jamestown Recreation Center.
