About Johnny Tarr
A multi-instrumentalist performing Celtic music for years, Johnny Tarr has decided to keep waving the proverbial, musical flag when the members of the band Sláinte left for personal reasons. A firm foundation had been laid with the band in the community, including opening for national acts such as The Elders, so Johnny Tarr will be continuing on that note while still expanding the music library and adding new and diverse spins on the classics. Playing guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, bass, harmonica, pennywhistle, bodhran, bones, bass drum, and accordion, by using loop pedals and vocal harmonizers, Johnny Tarr’s heart is in performing live music with excitement and passion for Irish music. To date, no recordings have been made due to these unique live performances, every one different from the last. Whether it be a sad, slow tune or a dancin’ jig with the crowd on their feet, everyone is guaranteed a good time. It shouldn’t be long before you are able to catch Johnny Tarr an Irish pub near you and if you are a promoter, bring Johnny Tarr to your venue. Sláinte!
