While in Scotland, Dominique studied with many renowned artists in the Scottish tradition, including some of the premier harp players in the field: Patsy Seddon, Wendy Stewart, Corrina Hewat, Catriona McKay, Mary MacMaster, Alison Kinnaird, and Ingrid Henderson. Dominique studied Scots song with Alison McMorland and Karine Polwart, and Gaelic song with Kenna Campbell and Mairi MacInnes.
Dominique has performed at Denmark’s Tønder Festival, the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, the Edinburgh Harp Festival, and the Edinburgh Fiddle Festival as well as for HRH the Prince of Wales and at the opening of the Scottish Parliament Building.
