He has also regularly played with other notables like Jack Sonni (Dire Straits) and the legendary composer David Amram over the past 15 years. He gained national attention as part of the jazz-folk-pop group Cactus Highway in the early 2000s, whom the Boston Herald called "a duo of true sophistication."

transcenDance is solo lyrical improvisational dancer Amanda Parkhurst. She uses silk scarves and flowing ribbons with fluid modern dance choreography to provide the audience with a visual representation of several of duquette's pieces. Her goal is to assist the audience in understanding and feeling the emotional energy of the songs in a gentle visualization. Amanda has been a professional dancer and choreographer since the 1990s. after many years behind the curtain, she has been re-inspired by duquette’s music to create and share on the stage once again.
