Daisy Caire is a flatpicking guitarist, vocalist, fiddler, and songwriter based in El Dorado County who Bluegrass Today called a  “whiz-kid." Her repertoire spans from hard-core bluegrass to melodious Americana and driving old-time.   

Daisy's musical journey started at the age of six when she sang and picked her first songs and tunes with her parents and sister as the El Dorado Family Band. She then co-founded the Rambling Minors, a popular youth bluegrass band, where she had the opportunity to play live on radio stations, KVMR and KPFA.  KQED's California Report featured the band in May 2016.  She recorded an EP-length CD with the Rambling Minors.  Next, Daisy co-founded another popular youth bluegrass band: North Country Blue. Daisy, as a part of North Country Blue, played the Strawberry Music Festival, was featured on Insight with Beth Ruyack in 2019, played Viva Las VeGrass, and recorded a full-length album. Two of Daisy's originals, The Counting Song and Ruby High, were featured on the album. Daisy played the Califonia Bluegrass Association's Father's Day Festival with Rambling Minors and North Country Blue. Daisy has represented the California Bluegrass Association's Youth Program at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass four times. Her original tune "Remy's Breakdown" won 2nd place in the Mike Auldridge Instrumental Composition Contest here.
