Boston based Uilleann piper Joey Abarta and fiddler Nathan Gourley are two of America’s great young musicians. Their music includes offbeat settings of well-known tunes and beautiful pieces that seem to languish in obscurity. Joey Abarta has spent the last sixteen years touring North America, Europe, and Asia, teaching and performing music on the uilleann pipes, the Irish bagpipe. In the fall of 2014 Joey became the first American uilleann piper to win first prize at the An tOireachtas, one of the biggest competitions for traditional music in the world. Nathan Gourley was a finalist in the Sean O Riada fiddle competition in 2014 and winner of Boston’s Fiddler of Dooney competition in 2013. Nathan can be seen playing at concerts, ceilis, sessions and festivals in Boston and throughout the United States and Ireland. For this weekend Copley Street is joined by Owen Marshall on Greek bouzouki.
