This Saturday, Jan. 15, 2011, the trio of Aubrey Atwater, Elwood Donnelly and Cathy Clasper-Torch returns to the Rose Garden Coffeehouse in Mansfield, bringing a blend of beautiful harmonies, a wealth of instruments and even a touch of dance. In the afternoon, the trio will perform for children at a Cocoahouse concert in Norton.

The wife-husband team of Atwater-Donnelly have played all over New England and often pack their concerts. They have a loyal following that enjoys the variety of traditional music and their highly skilled musicianship on guitar, banjo, dulcimer and others. Add to the mix Clasper-Torch’s fiery fiddle and wonderful harmonies, and it’s a potent mixture. And we haven’t even talked about Atwater’s traditional stepdancing, which adds a whole new dimension to the show:

On the afternoon of the show, the trio will present a special “Cocoahouse Concert” just for the kids at The Children’s Studio in Norton. The Cocoahouse Concert will be held from 1:30 pm until 3 pm. Free cocoa and cookies will be served to everyone attending. The Children’s Studio website has full information about this, including how to get tickets.
