The popular Rhode Island Folk duo Atwater-Donnelly stopped by the Burlingame Family Festival recently to perform authentic American folk music during a day filled with wholesome outdoor fun when the entire community came together.

The Burlingame Family Festival was made possible thanks to the incredible support from organizations, public servants, sponsors and friends who contributed their time and talent. Their efforts created smiles and memories for nearly 900 people, organizers said, thanks to “Superhero Sponsor, Washington Trust, Naturalist Sponsors, Arlington RV, Charlestown Chamber of Commerce and the South County Tourism Council.”
