Floral Park, N.Y.--Scores of Tara O'Grady fans, new and established, filled the main room at Swing The Teapot on Friday evening.

Describing Tara as "the full package, combining celtic, folk, blues, and especially jazz in her unique style, writer Chris B. Donohue writes Tara possesses "Elizabeth Taylor’s features, Billie Holiday’s voice, Audrey Hepburn’s fashion sense, and a combination of Cole Porter’s writing style with a touch of Nellie McKay’s quirky lyrics."
And she enjoys adding her unique style to classic Irish melodies, including "I'll Tell My Ma" and "The Holy Ground," among many others.
