I have been playing the uilleann pipes (Irish bagpipes) since 1999, and have performed in a variety of venues in Ireland, the UK, and the US. I am a professional, conservatory-trained musician with a Master of Music degree from the Longy School of Music; I have also studied with some of the finest pipers in Ireland including Eamonn O Broithe, Mick O'Brien, Neillidh Mulligan, and Kevin Rowsome.

The uilleann pipes are quieter than the Highland (Scottish) pipes and have much greater range and flexibility, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor performance in many different situations. I specialize in traditional Irish sean-nos ("old-style") airs on the pipes, and can play jigs, reels, and other types of Irish, Scottish and American tunes, as well as hymn tunes and a wide variety of special requests. I also sing and play Irish whistle ("tin whistle"), low whistle, flute and bodhran (the traditional Irish drum), and I'm happy to include these in my performance as well.

If you're interested in a duo or trio, please let me know and I'll be happy to contact other musicians and arrange it for you; other available instruments include guitar, fiddle, cello, and Celtic harp.

Fantastic communicator, very talented musician, professional, punctual, very like able ..... He was an essential addition to the Memorial Service we had for my brother. He has a huge repertoire of songs and needs no direction choosing suitable, evicative, appropriate music. I wish I had hired him for many more hours.

Dan was one of the best parts of our wedding!!! He played all of the music for the ceremony and people were raving all day about how beautiful the music was. Dan was a pleasure to work with--a total professional, accomodating, flexible, efficient, responsive, and gave me GREAT suggestions. And he is incredibly talented, he played multiple instruments and every song was gorgeous. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!!

Dan was beyond responsive via email and phone. I felt confident after speaking with Dan that he understood my wishes. He executed them perfectly. The pipes are softer and our family enjoyed them immensely. Attendees did not want to leave the cemetery after the service because he was still playing and it afforded them more time to talk to one another. AND he was early to the site, which allowed me to relax.
