Old Sloop Coffeehouse will present The Atwater-Donnelly Trio in concert Saturday, February 9 at 7:30 PM at the handicap-accessible First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St.  Emerald Rae will open the show.

Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly perform a unique and thrilling blend of traditional American and Celtic folk music and dance, along with original songs and poetry.  The highly praised husband-wife duo blends gorgeous vocals with an astounding array of instruments including the mountain dulcimer, old-time banjo, tin whistle, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, limberjacks, feet and more.  Cathy Clasper-Torch will join Aubrey and Elwood for this performance.  Cathy is a remarkable fiddler, cellist and vocalist.

Hailing from our neighboring historic fishing town of Gloucester, Massachusetts, Emerald Rae is both a small-town girl steeped in cherished traditions and a world-class artist breaking new ground with her sophisticated approach to rhythmic and percussive fiddling.
