About
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.

I was THRILLED with Darius Kaufmann! He was on time and he was agreeable to whatever we wanted or needed him to do! Attendees of the event have been talking about him and how wonderful he was! He was very knowledgeable about not just the bagpipes, but Scottish music and tradition. I would HIGHLY recommend him.

We travelled from our home in Scotland to get married in NYC and hired Darius for the event - even before we confirmed our booking, Darius was professional, communicative, helpful and enthusiastic - he continued to be so throughout. Being Scottish ourselves and a very musical family, we are tough customers to please in the bagpipe department but I'm delighted to confirm that Darius was fantastic and totally exceeded our expectations. Cannot recommend highly enough - made our wedding!
