Named after the legendary noblemen whose castles dotted the wild Scottish borders in the 1500's, Border Lord brings sensitivity and passion to original and traditional Celtic/folk ballads and instrumental airs, from Rick's "Bonny Brave Boys", Andy Stewart's "Take Her in Your Arms" to Carolan's "Bridget Cruise". Featuring singer/songwriter harpist Rick Stanley and master cellist Robin Pfoutz -- Border Lord, with its concentration on melody and feeling, brings new interpretation to the traditional as well as contributing some of the best original music on the scene.

Border Lord is unique in the Celtic/folk world by combining lively harp counter-melodies around soaring folk cello and moving vocals. Formerly with Columbia Records as "The Gentle Soul", Rick Stanley has entertained audiences all over the world, moving them from tears to laughter in the space of a song with his rich "Cat Stevens" voice, rhythmic harping and charming humor.

"Rick's voice has aged like fine wine-rich, deep, and subtle, with a power of emotional expression that comes from an intimate place of natural innocence beyond ego and showmanship" (Ian MacGregor, The Source, November 2001).
