Hailing from the Beara Peninsula in the South-West of Ireland, Tara Viscardi is a classical and Irish folk harpist. First Prize Winner of the 2021 Camac Harp Competition, Tara has been praised for her 'unique, stylish playing' and 'innate musicality'. A graduate of the Royal College of Music London, Civica Scuola di Musica Claudio Abbado Milan, the Wigmore Learning/ Royal Academy of Music Fellowship programme and TU Dublin Conservatoire, solo and chamber performances have taken her across Ireland and the UK, and further afield to Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Belgium and Hong Kong.
Tara is the current recipient of an Arts Council of Ireland Agility Award and was recently featured at the 14th World Harp Congress, Cardiff performing her original compositions for traditional harp and flute paired with chamber music by 19th and 20th century female composers, generously supported by Culture Ireland.
