WINNER – BEST OF 2012-2017 - 25 years experience. Darius Kaufmann performs on a wide range of Celtic instruments, including bagpipes, smallpipes, Irish whistle, Irish frame drum (bodhran), spoons and voice. His numerous T.V. and movie credits include "Good Morning America" with Il Divo (see video below), "The Tonight Show", "Conan O'Brien" and Russell Crowe's "Tenderness". He has performed with Sinead O'Connor, and recorded with Tom Chapin on the Grammy-nominated CD "Around the World and Back Again". In December of 2013 he was asked by Bono to perform for Mayor Bloomberg's farewell party at Gracie Mansion, along with Whoopi Goldberg and Paul Simon. His piping can be heard on the soundtrack to the feature film "The Lost City of Z". Darius has been a member of several competition pipe bands in the N.Y. area, including Inis Fada, and the Monaghan Pipe Band. He has competed in both solo and band competitions at Irish and Scottish games throughout the Northeast. In addition to his background in Irish and Scottish music, he is classically trained in piano, flute and composition. This gives him an ability to easily learn special requests, to adapt non-standard tunes to the bagpipes, and to arrange and compose accompaniments for the pipes and the Irish whistle. Serving the entire Tri-State Area: N.Y. City (all boroughs), Long Island, Westchester, Rockland, NJ and CT.

Review by Diana L.

Family ReunionReviewed on July 9, 2022From New York City, NY

Darius Kaufmann arrived immaculately dressed in full bagpiper regalia and played at the end of my brother's memorial service after listening attentively to the eulogies that were given before his performance. He had been hired to play "Amazing Grace" on the bagpipes and to lead the attendees in singing the hymn. Before he performed he added more information to the back story of that hymn than had been given by one of the eulogizers. He then simultaneously played the hymn beautifully while expertly leading the singing. I am very pleased that I hired Mr. Kaufmann to play at my brother's service.

FuneralReviewed on April 23, 2022From Brooklyn, NY

Darius was absolutely fantastic. Our family was very happy with the his performance, appearance, and how cordial he was at our Mother's graveside service. She loved the bagpipes and she loved Ireland. Darius provided her with both. His playing of Danny Boy on the Whistle brought a tear to everyone's eye. I highly recommend Darius Kaufman. You will be glad you hired him. Many Thanks Darius.
