Shelley Phillips

Shelley Phillips (folk flutes/oboe/English horn/Irish harp) is much in demand as studio and pick-up musician for the professional folk and baroque crowd, and has toured the world. She and her husband Barry have collaborated with Rumi translator and poet Coleman Barks, making two albums of poetry and music: The Rose and Five Things to Say. Shelley has appeared on over 20 recordings on the Gourd music label, including 4 solo albums.
Shelley has a Masters of Music degree from the San Francisco Conservatory, and continued her education on sabbatical in 2006 studying shenai with Sanjeev Shankar in India, willow flute with Jean-Pierre Yvert in Wales, and pipe making with Shirley Drake in England, as well as special classes in the Netherlands and Ireland. She continues to work with Scottish master flute builder Rod Cameron in Mendocino. Barry and Shelley live on the foggy California coast with a spoiled cat named Peepers.
