Tara Dutcher

A fiddler from the age of 3, Tara's unique style blends her Irish roots with her classical and jazz training from The University of Iowa, where she earned a Bachelor of Music degree in 2000.

Fiddling is a family tradition for Tara. Her mother, Carmel Vrabel (nee' McGovern), is a fiddler from Swanlinbar, County Cavan, Ireland and her paternal great-grandfather, Homer Rayburn, was a bluegrass, country, and Old-Time fiddler in a family band in Michigan and Indiana.

In addition to performing and parenting, Tara owns and operates the McGovern Music Studio out of the West Music Conservatory in Coralville, Iowa.
