About Shelley

Shelley Musker Turner's profile picture
Celtic Harpist
Cardiff
Shelley Musker Turner is a Welsh harpist based in Cardiff, South Wales, who specialises in playing traditional Celtic folk music.

Shelley started playing the harp at a young age, lucky enough to have been taught by professional folk harpist, Harriet Earis. Although she was trained classically, Harriet naturally passed on her love of traditional folk music, which is where Shelley's heart really lies. In 2019, Shelley joined the internationally renowned Welsh folk band Calan as their harpist, and has since played gigs across the UK and Europe.
