Event Date: 
Saturday, December 9, 2017 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm

Please join the Friends of the Jackson Public Library as they host local favorite Dominique Dodge playing beautiful Gaelic harp music. She will perform at 5 pm on Saturday December 9, 2017 at the Jackson Public Library, located at 52 Main Street in Jackson, NH.

Dominique spent much of the last 2 years in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, which has a vibrant living tradition of Gaelic language, music, and dance. These traditions were brought over by emigrants from Scotland and shaped by generations of Cape Breton people. This concert will reflect her time in Cape Breton, as well as her experiences living in Scotland and Ireland.

Dominique is a harper and singer who grew up in Jackson, NH and now makes her home in Vermont and Cape Breton. She is deeply grounded in traditional music and song. 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. She has been performing, recording, and teaching traditional music on both sides of the Atlantic for over a decade.
