An informative exploration of Irish traditional music and song on the harp. Dominique begins with music from the time of the blind 17th Century harper Turlough O' Carolan, and moves forward in time to trace the lineage of modern day dance forms Irish musicians know and love, visiting a song or two along the way.
Dominique Dodge 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 is a dedicated learner of Scottish Gaelic and has been performing, recording, and teaching traditional music on both sides of the Atlantic for over a decade.
