About Sean Turner

Top class multi-instrumentalist musician, dancer and singer in Belfast with a priority to amaze audiences and leave them wanting more!

I am Sean Turner. I began playing violin at the tender age of 4 and since then picked up more and more instruments. With a grade 8 distinction in violin and Irish traditional fiddle, over 10 years of experience in banjo and a LCM Diploma in piano, I am fully qualified to adjust myself to any needs of an audience. I’ve played weddings, parties and more and always enter performances with the mindset of leaving the audience wanting more. As well as my many years of experience in instrumental music I am also a keen singer and dancer which I have showcased in multiple venues to much awe. People have called me ‘a prodigy’, ‘a genius’ and ‘the best act they’ve seen’ due to the fact that I not only perform but also compose my own music.

Played at our wedding and just sealed the deal of the specialness of that beautiful day. I’ll definitely be contacting him again for more events!

Customer questions

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Luke Kelly Harry Connick Jr. Tommy Peoples Thundercat Silk Sonic Michael Jackson Elvis Presley Ray Charles

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

If I can accommodate a change in timings, I will indeed! I always try to maintain a level of flexibility to allow events to run as smoothly as possible. Just let me know in advance!

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Of course! Music played via my PA system before the performance and between sets is completely free of charge.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up between 45 minutes to 1 hour before performance time. As soon as the PA system is set up, I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for the performance!

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

My set lists are created from many performances and learning to understand what works best to ensure guests at venues have the most enjoyable time, though I’m happy to chat through and make sure I find what works best for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yep! For example, if I’m playing my electric piano, I’ll bring along my amp and the piano itself or if I’m playing the fiddle or the banjo, I’ll bring my own instruments to play acoustically. :)

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn’t included in my song list, there may still be a chance I already know it. If there are a special few songs you’d like me to learn I’m happy to do this for a small charge.
