Turner grew up in the port town of Wexford, where his mother ran a record shop and led her own band. A classically trained musician, by the age of seven he was a member of a traditional Irish tin-whistle group, and at eight, he was playing in a brass and reed orchestra. He also sang in his local chuch choir, and the influence of hymn and plain-chant singing has been evident throughout his later career. After releasing numerous albums , Hot Press dubbed him ” Irelands greatest living poet ” following the release of his “Now Is Heaven” album in 1991 .
