TerraTara is a singer/songwriter that is blessed to be a dual citizen of the USA and Canada. She travels back and forth between Slocan, B.C. and Southern Oregon. She has an off-grid cabin in the mountains of British Columbia with clean fresh water flowing. She is inspired by nature and her surroundings and plays music to reflect that. She was named after the famous site in Ireland, The Hill of Tara. Throughout her life, people asked her if she pronounced her name, Terra or Tara, so she decided to call herself, Terra Tara. She plays guitar, mandolin, piano and all types of percussion.
She started out playing guitar and wrote many singer/songwriter compositions throughout the 2000’s. She began traveling the world and switched to mandolin because it was easier to carry while on the road, busking on the streets with her unique sound. While busking, she learned melodies of traditional Eastern European, Middle Eastern, Indian, Irish, Folk and Reggae music. She blends all those in her music today.
