Biography C Shapland began learning the piano and violin at the age of 7 taking up the harp a few years later. After studying with the Royal Northern College of Music Harp Tutor, she continued her training at Aberystwyth University.
Returning to Cumbria she performed with various orchestras and as part of a flute and harp duo as well as teaching at various schools. Since moving to the Celtic Harp 13 years ago, C Shapland has concentrated on playing at weddings and functions, being a regular at many leading hotels in the area. She has entertained at a wide variety of events from corporate dinners to small family parties, Irish Weddings to Medieval evenings, even playing Disney favourites at a Christening!
Your Event The harp is the perfect musical accompaniment for weddings. Romantic and intimate, it can give that extra sparkle to your special day. Every effort will be made by C Shapland to accommodate any special requests for pieces as long as reasonable notice is given. She is happy to play outside and to play in marquees as long as there is a level floor and power supply available.
