Joey Abarta is an award-winning uilleann piper who has spent more than half his life traveling, teaching, and performing. Originally from California, he first received instruction on the pipes from Dubliner Pat D’Arcy, a founding member of the Southern California Uilleann Pipers Club. He went on to receive 2nd place at the All Ireland Fleadh in piping in 2009, and first prize at the An tOireachtas, becoming the the first American uilleann piper to do so since 1969. Joey is an active contributor to his local Boston scene and was the 2015 recipient of the Artist Fellowship in the Traditional Arts from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

“Every piece on King of the Blind has a charm and beauty of its own, whether it’s the eerie title air or the rollicking set of reels which ends this album.” – Alex Monaghan, Irish Music Magazine
