Karen Turley Short Info

Karen Turley is a Singer-Songwriter from Omagh in Northern Ireland, living in Liverpool.
She started playing the guitar at the age of 15 and has always had a passion for music, particularly American Folk and Country.

Karen continues to write and record her own material and has recently had her original songs 'Little Old Me' and 'Dreamer' played on BBC Introducing on BBC Radio Merseyside, as well as joining 'Dave Monks' for a few live sessions.

In March 2015 Karen was lucky enough to be one of two Singer/Songwriters chosen to travel to Nashville for a full week of Songwriting workshops and activities with esteemed songwriters. She was also able to perform in the round with the wonderful Beth Nielsen Chapman and Don Henry in the famous 'Bluebird Cafe'.
The competition is part of an exciting exchange between Liverpool and Nashville, with The 'Bluebird Cafe' being recreated in August 2015 in 'The Bluecoat' in Liverpool for an evening of live performances. Karen performed at the Early Show for this event while the late show was hosted by 'Whispering Bob Harris' and included special guests from Nashville.

Karen has a mixture of influences from the likes of KT Tunstall, Brandi Carlile, Dixie Chicks, Gregory Alan Isakov, Fleetwood Mac, a deep love of Bluegrass, particularly Alison Krauss and Union Station and a love of traditional country; Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton & Johnny Cash, to name a few.

2016 saw Karen support Xander and the Peace Pirates at The View Two Gallery with Liverpool Acoustic and in March she was thrilled to perform as part of the The Liverpool Acoustic Festival in The Unity Theatre.

She recently played at The Chorlton Arts Festival and regularly gigs in Liverpool. She played at the very first Folk Festival at The Docks at the end of August as well as supporting Singer-Songwriter 'Franc Cinelli' on the Liverpool stop of his UK tour.
