Local Brew Coffeehouse Presents The Atwater~Donnelly Trio


The December 9th Local Brew Coffeehouse brings The Atwater-Donnelly Trio back to our stage. The East Bay's own Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly are a highly acclaimed husband and wife duo, well-known up and down the eastern seaboard for their entertaining performances of traditional American and Celtic folk songs, a capella pieces, old-time gospel songs, dance tunes, and original works. Their musical talents are showcased on a host of instruments including guitar, Appalachian mountain dulcimer, mandolin, tin whistle, harmonica, banjo, bones, spoons, limberjacks, and other surprises including Appalachian clog dancing and French Canadian footwork. When Cathy Clasper-Torch adds her magic to the mix on stage, the group becomes The Atwater-Donnelly Trio. Cathy's talents have mesmerized audiences at venues throughout New England and beyond including a long history of appearances at Local Brew Coffeehouses and Local Brew Fiddle 'n Folk Festivals. In addition to Atwater-Donnelly, she has performed with Shelley Katsh, Kim Trusty, Mary King, Ed Sweeney, Mark Cutler, Dan Lanier, Kevin Fallon, and Saddle Up the Chicken, just to name a few. Many people recognized her from her contributions on fiddle, cello, Chinese erhu and vocals to the world music group, The Gnomes.

Drownville Station will be your musical hosts for the evening.
