Tara Shupe and the Ponies is a Salt Lake City Bluegrass Supergroup, comprised of four seasoned veterans of the Utah acoustic music scene.  After the release of her solo album in the Spring of 2018 featuring her favorite musicians from across the Nation, Tara set out to gather the same solid musicianship locally in her band of ponies.  Heading up the band on guitar rather than her primary instrument of mandolin, Tara brought in her brother and life-long musical collaborator Daron on banjo, Megan Nay, the 2018 Utah State Fiddle Champion with the voice of an angel, on fiddle, and long-time friend and former Puddle Mountain Rambler bandmate Matt Ligman on bass.  Playing an array of bluegrass standards, originals,  and bluegrassified covers, Tara Shupe and the Ponies bring the party to any crowd.
