Here is a little more about The Harper and The Minstrel:

Talented and versatile Multi-Instrumentalists Jay and Abby Michaels make up the duo The Harper and The Minstrel. Their unique sound is influenced by Celtic, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Folk and Rock Music.
Abby's angelic alto and Jay's smokey baritone are accompanied by a variety of instruments including both the Traditional Gaelic Wire-Strung Harp (Cláirseach) and the Nylon-Strung Celtic Folk Harp, Silver Flute, Divergent Flute, Irish Wooden Flute, Alto, Soprano & Tenor Recorders, Penny Whistles, Bowed Psaltery, Bowed, Plucked & Hammered Dulcimers, Viol, Classical Guitar and Folk Guitar.

This duo specializes in beautiful airs and ballads and unique arrangements of Traditional and Early Music from 13th Century Spanish Cantgas de Santa Maria to the music of English Lutenist John Dowland to Ireland's Turlough O'Carolan to creative acoustic covers of Classic Rock songs by artist like Sting and The Beatles.

For the past decade The Harper and The Minstrel have brought their music to many venues in America including Folk, Renaissance, Medieval, and Celtic Festivals, Coffee Houses, Libraries, Senior Residences and Farmers Markets.


The Harper and The Minstrel are featured Entertainers at Florida's Annual Fort Myers Medieval Festival, The Hoggetowne Medieval Faire and The Florida Renaissance Festival.

They have performed at The ICONS Irish Festival, The Boston Green Fest, The Dundee NY Scottish Festival, The Sterling Renaissance Festival, The Great Lakes Medieval Faire, The Soule Homestead Folk Festival, The Taunton River Folk Festival, The Connecticut Renaissance Faire, King Richard's Faire, The Beal House at The South Shore Folk Music Club, The Phoenix Faerie Festival, The Southern California Pleasure Faire, The Boston Spring Flower Show and at many other events.



"You can best judge a musician’s acumen by the way they interpret music, whether that music is familiar to you or obscure...Jay and Abby Michaels’ deft adaptations of songs from Sting to Robert Burns are thrilling, and they reveal the pair to be artists of some skill."
