arry has been a professional guitarist since 1973 and has accompanied on guitar Symphony Orchestras in London, Toronto, Quebec City and Edmonton.
“Larry Smith, one of London’s best known musicians, uncorks fine rootsie jazz, swing and blues. A good vintage music of exceptional taste, strong legs, aged and proven with a just a hint of nutty.”
Tara Dunphy is an award winning singer, songwriter and musician from London, Ontario, Canada. Now known as primarily traditional country artist, she is the co-founder and co-lead singer of acclaimed Canadian country group The Rizdales, but Tara began her music career at the young age of 3. She began playing traditional Irish music under the guidance of Paddy Fagan, first with the tin whistle and then moving on to the wooden flute. After winning multiple championships for those instruments, Tara turned her focus to the fiddle. Though she was classically trained, her interest in improvisational playing took over and Tara soon discovered a passion for traditional country music.
