About
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.

Dan made our ceremony extra special with his beautiful playing. His willingness to travel for events is wonderful, even for a short time, and I highly recommend him to others looking for an ethereal musical element.

I want to thank Daniel Meyers for such a beautiful selection of music played at my sons funeral and Interment services. I had spoken to Daniel prior to the services with a request of 3 songs and that Daniel make the selection of all other music played. Daniel was very professional and helpful from beginning to end. It would be my joy and honor to have Daniel play in the future. Thank you again Daniel

Dan was great and his music was perfect for our event. I would highly recommend him to others. He was also very easy to reach and communicate with before the event. He was on time and played exactly what we wanted him too, he even learned a new song that we requested. We were all very pleased :) Teresa from Massachusetts

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!!!

This has been a while since I used Daniel Meyes, I apologize. I used him for my wedding on Sept 9, 2017 along with his trio. Daniel was amazing, he setup outside our church with his bagpipes before and after the ceremony. And then his trio came to our reception as well and played for our cocktail hour. I can't recommend him and his team enough if you are looking for live music for your event. Thank you again Daniel for making my wedding so special.

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 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.

We could not have been happier with how everything went with Dan. He was super easy to work with leading up to our wedding and was very responsive and accommodating. The day of he was on time and the music was beautiful, everything we had hoped it would be. We are so thankful we chose him and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Absolutely amazing. Had professional classical musicians in attendance who said he was the best pipe player that they had ever heard. A quiet symphony that truly made the wedding perfect.
