Richard Dyer-BennetRichard Dyer-Bennet (October 6, 1913 - December 14, 1991) was a Folk-singer (or his own preferred term, "minstrel") and voice teacher. His last name is often misspelled "Dyer-Bennett".

Dyer-Bennet studied voice with Gertrude Wheeler Beckman and Sven Scholander, and from the first made his living singing. During his peak performance years, he gave 50 concerts a year. He recorded extensively for many labels, and eventually founded his own, Dyer-Bennet Records, and recorded in his own living room. The albums he recorded on his own label have been re-released on CD by Smithsonian Folkways.
