Atwater-Donnelly is a long-time Rhode Island folk music group consisting of Aubrey Atwater, Elwood Donnelly, and occasionally other musicians and dancers. They have toured throughout the United States and internationally, playing guitar, banjo, Appalachian dulcimer, tin whistle, limberjack, and other instruments.

Aubrey and Elwood met as volunteers at the Stone Soup coffeehouse in Rhode Island in early 1987, and started playing together a few months later. They specialize in traditional American music and Celtic folk music, but write and play their own songs as well. Their performances have been featured on All Songs Considered and Fiona Ritchie's The Thistle & Shamrock on public radio. Aubrey regularly runs workshops at places like the John C. Campbell Folk School.

They were one of the earlier groups to be on the web, after one of their fans worked with Aubrey to put a site up in 1995.

They have released 9 albums, several books of poetry, and a song and method book.
