Perfect Fool

“Full to the brim with super-smooth melodies and spell-binding fret wizardry”

Edwin McFee (Sunday Life)


A live performer of over 25 years, Joe is a singer, musician and song writer hailing from Dromintee, Co. Armagh in Northern Ireland. Joe wows audiences with his unique guitar style and an uncompromising vocal delivery that has enthralled and entertained audiences in venues throughout Ireland and beyond.

“I can’t see a thing, I’m as blind as it gets. I know everyone’s experience is different but it’s not easy navigating a path through the music industry. There’s no doubt in my mind that people who are blind or live with any kind of disability, still face barriers from negative attitudes and stereotyping each and every day. There’s a long way to go until we are taken at face value in an industry like music. But I also believe that there’s never been a better time to push those boundaries and challenge those perceptions. Your disability or the bit that people see, isn’t everything you are.”
