Library Program: Gaelic Harp music

Event Date: 
Saturday, December 8, 2018 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Please join the Friends of the Jackson Public Library as they again host local favorite Dominique Dodge playing beautiful Gaelic harp music. She will perform at 5 pm on Saturday December 8, 2018 at the Jackson Public Library, located at 52 Main Street in Jackson, NH.
 
Dominique Dodge is a harper and singer who grew up in Jackson, and now divides her time between Vermont and Cape Breton. She has a passion for melody-driven dance music and responsive, rhythmic accompaniment, as well as for songs, airs, and 18th century harp tunes. Her sound is firmly grounded in the traditional music and song of Cape Breton, Scotland, and Ireland. A former Fulbright Scholar and a 2012 graduate of the University of Limerick with an MA in Irish Music Performance, Dominique also holds a BA Honours in Scottish Music from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow.
 
Dominique is a dedicated learner of Scottish Gaelic, a profound influence on her music which continues to shape her sense of rhythm and phrasing. She has extensive experience in traditional arts education and maintains a busy and vibrant teaching practice. She has been performing, recording, and teaching traditional music on both sides of the Atlantic for over a decade.
 
This concert is free and open to the public although a $5.00 donation is welcome to offset performer expenses. For more information, please contact the Jackson Public Library at 603-383-9731
