JACKSON — The Friends of the Jackson Public Library will once again host local favorite Dominique Dodge playing Gaelic harp music on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 5 p.m. at the Jackson Public Library, located at 52 Main St. in Jackson.

Dodge is a harper and singer who grew up in Jackson, and now divides her time between Vermont and Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada.

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.

Dodge 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 donation is welcome to offset performer expenses.

For more information, contact the Jackson Public Library at (603) 383-9731.
