BELLOWS FALLS — Dunham Shoe Factory, a world music collaboration between Anna Patton, Mac Ritchey, Todd Roach and Dave Haughey, will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at Immanuel Episcopal Church, 20 Church St., Bellows Falls.
Dunham Shoe Factory is a contemporary acoustic ensemble playing original compositions influenced by world traditions. Combining the clarinet, oud, percussion and cello, its music draws from an array of styles including Egyptian, jazz, Brazilian, Turkish, classical and Indian music.
Currently based in New England, individual members have performed in a variety of settings locally, nationally and internationally over the past 25 years. After coming together as Dunham Shoe Factory in 2016, the group has created a unique sound by weaving together the threads of common experience that exist between the players.
The ensemble will also perform at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at Episcopal Church of Saints James and Andrew in Greenfield, Massachusetts.
