About the Event

Come  and celebrate the new music of the legendary folk trio, The Dust  Bunnies, from Saranac Lake in a rare Sunday afternoon show. Featuring- Shamim Allen on guitar/ vocals, Mary Lou Reid on guitar/flute, Elaine Dewar on violin/vocals. Free admission. After  earning a Bachelor of Music in 1985 and a Master of Music in 1990,  Elaine Dewer has enjoyed a career of professional playing and teaching.  Symphonic engagements include the Orchestra of Northern New York, the  Harrisburg Symphony and the Bronx Opera Orchestra. She has also  performed with a variety of artists including Joni Mitchell, Johnny  Mathis, Vic Damone, the Electric Light Orchestra, and Luciano Pavarotti.   Mary Lou Reid on the guitar and flute’s passion for music stems  from the gatherings at her Italian grandparents’ home. Song was an  integral part of the Sunday and holiday get-togethers. Her memories of  guitars, mandolins and beautiful voices continued at her own home where  she and her father, who taught her to play guitar, sang country and folk  tunes around the kitchen table. She has now inherited these very  instruments that were played all those Sundays ago, and treasures them  dearly. Shamin Allen, guitar player and native of Saranac Lake,  has been playing throughout the Adirondacks for the past ten years. She  performed with The Dust Bunnies, Community Celli, and is an original  member of Innisheer. She enjoyed “many swingin’ years with Crackin’  Foxy” and was an occasional new grass gig fill-in with Big Slide.
