The beauty, history and music of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders are the inspiration for the popular and multi-talented BORDER MINSTRELS - a unique professional combination of Northumbrian Pipes, Harp and Voice. 

Richard Butler is Piper to His Grace the Duke of Northumberland and is undoubtedly one of the region’s finest Northumbrian Pipers.

Janet Bennett is harpist to the Lord Mayor of Newcastle Upon Tyne and is one of Britain’s leading exponents in the art of self accompanied singing and playing of the small folk harp and larger orchestral harp.

They regularly perform music and songs for Royalty and are available for concerts, weddings, ceilidhs, as guest artists and for special occasions.
