Tuesday, February 13, 6:30 pm
JACKSON — Get ready for Valentine’s Day with a wonderful evening out at a family concert at the Whitney Community Center in Jackson on February 13. People of all ages are invited to join the traditional American folk duo Atwater-Donnelly for a lively, humorous and participatory concert focused on the beauty, humor and perils of love.
Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly bring decades of experience traveling the United States, Canada and the British Isles as performers and educators. They will share traditional American folk music (and dance!) as well asCeltic folks songs during the evening concert.
Based in Rhode Island, the couple has traveled extensively since 1988, performing and searching for songs and stories. Their work blends gorgeous vocals, guitar, dulcimer, mandolin, whistle, harmonica, banjo, bones, limberjacks and other surprises, including Appalachian clogging, square dance and French Canadian footwork, and their stories connect the songs and capture the audience. They also teach at all levels. They have 13 recordings and seven books to their credit.
The concert begins at 6:30 p.m. at The Whitney Community Center, 10 Black Mountain Road, Jackson. Tickets are $12 for adults, $18 for couples, $20 for families. Purchase concert tickets in advance at www.aannh.org and save $2. Everyone is welcome; if the price is a hardship, concert-goers are invited to pay what they can or come as a guest of the Arts Alliance.
