Canadian harpist and composer Sharlene Wallace is a musician flowing between and mingling Classical, folk and contemporary genres and performing, recording and teaching on both pedal and lever (Celtic) harps.

Winner of the Lyon & Healy International Pop & Jazz Lever Harp Competition (USA) and the Dinan Concours d’Improvisation de Rencontres International de Harp Celtique (Brittany), she has given concerts and workshops across Canada, the United States, France and Italy. Sharlene tours with bass player George Koller, the Winter’s Eve Trio (with George Koller, bass and Joseph Macerollo, accordion), and the Christmas ensemble Harp & Holly (Sharlene, Celtic harp, Sandra Swannell, vocals, fiddle and viola, Terry Young, vocals and finger-style guitar, Rob Ritchie, vocals and keyboard and Juanita Wilkins, vocals).

Sharlene’s seven CDs express journeys of rhythm, spaciousness, the Canadian landscape, Celtic, Classical, South American and original music. Sharlene is also featured playing on Ron Korb's Grammy- nominated album Asia Beauty and most recently on Frank Horvat's Centrediscs albums Music for Self-Isolation and What Goes Around.

Sharlene has composed many pieces for Celtic harp and harp ensemble as well as commissioning numerous works for harp by Canadian composers. This summer she will give presentations on her compositions for Celtic-lever harp at the American Harp Society's National Conference.

As an educator Sharlene has taught harp workshops across North America and annually for CAMMAC in Quebec and Island Mountain Arts in Wells, BC. She teaches both lever and pedal harps at York University, Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Guelph. | sharlenewalace.com
