Border Directors Website



The Border Directors came into existence in 1987 as the Blue Moon Band, 25 years ago, emerging from the old regular Sunday sessions at the Joiners Arms in Morpeth.  The original lineup comprised Kim, John, Derek, Matt and the demon flute player Peter Hawkey.  The band ranged widely round the North East & produced the cassette album Barker's Yarka, just in time for Peter to migrate to Peterhead (conveniently named after him) in the far northern lands of Scotland, though a couple of successful trips to perform at festivals around Fyvie and Fraserburgh followed.


A limited edition CD version of Barker's Yarka came out a decade later but was sold out.  However, if there is huge public demand... 




Before you point out that the photo above looks doctored, it is... John took the photo & therefore wasn't in it, so had to be surgically added later to achieve the global effect.
