Tara and her Quartet (The TMQ) have played some of the capital’s top venues including the Pheasantry, The Pizza Express Soho, Ronnie Scott’s Upstairs and Le QuecumBar as well as tours abroad to Ireland, Switzerland, Poland, France, Lithuania and Australia. 2015 was a big year for Tara which included performances at the Ashtead Jazz Club, a weekly residency at the infamous Boogaloo, a sell out show at the Alchemia jazz club in Krakow, Poland, a hugely successful concert tour of Lithuania and a sold out performance and harp workshop at the Cambridge Jazz Festival to top it all off! So far this year Tara and her band finished recording their full length studio album in January, the trio sold out two headline dates at the Paris Cat Jazz Club in Melbourne, Australia in February, the TMQ played a very successful week long residency at Brasserie Zedel and a concert for the Lantern Arts Centre in April, and the trio headed over to France for a series of concerts for the Harpes aux Max festival in Ancenis mid May. Tara also plays for a gypsy jazz band - Harp Bazaar who have a weekly residency at the Boogaloo in Highgate on Sundays and embark on their maiden tour of Italy in June. When not sat behind a harp, Tara is a piano bar entertainer, having held residencies at The Savoy, The Millennium Grosvenor, The Dorchester, The RAC, The Criterion and The Rosewood. Tara was the first woman to play the infamous American Bar at the Savoy.
