She plays and sings bluegrass with her sister, but is open to other genres. Cara has entered countless competitions since she was 6 or 7 years old and has placed well in many contests in her life. Throughout her life as a young musician, she has taken lessons from many different great teachers. Currently, she plays mandolin in a bluegrass band called Someday Soon, with her sister and two others who she has grown up playing music with, and still continues to compete.
