Aubrey Atwater is an amazing folk musician who both sings and plays a myriad of musical instruments including dulcimer, banjo and guitar. And, as if that weren’t enough, she is a magnificent and energetic clogger! This past weekend, Atwater taught clogging at the Folk School. Last Thursday, she played a special concert and Keith House was completely packed with Folk School students and community members. Atwater played both traditional and original folk music, read an original poem, and closed with a killer clogging demonstration. For the grand finale, she played The Devil and the Farmer’s Wife where the devil gets more than he bargains for when he takes a farmer’s wife off to hell.
