NEWS! Kieran O'Hare just finished working on Broadway at The Hilton Theater as the featured piper and tinwhistle player for the new show The Pirate Queen, written by Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil of Les Miserables and Miss Saigon, and produced by John McColgan and Moya Doherty of Riverdance fame.


Kieran O'Hare is a highly respected and sought-after performer on the uilleann pipes, concert flute, and tinwhistle. He was born into a musical Irish-American family, and he began to play at home while in his early teens. Kieran moved to Dublin, Ireland, in 1991, where he received a degree in Modern History from Trinity College, Dublin, and he now resides in Brooklyn, NY, with his wife, the fiddler Liz Knowles.

In 1994, Kieran received the honor of being the first American-born player of Irish music invited to perform in the annual 'Ace and Deuce of Piping' concert, held in Ireland's National Concert Hall. Since then, he has made countless appearances at festivals and concerts in North America, Japan, and Europe. Among the many artists with whom Kieran has performed, toured or recorded are Mick Moloney and The Greenfields of America; Chicago fiddler Liz Carroll; Cape Breton fiddlers Jerry Holland and JP Cormier; Canadian singers Dave Gunning and Gordie Sampson; Irish vocalists Danny Doyle and Niamh Parsons; Celtic and early music performers Ensemble Galilei; the Trinity Irish Dance Company; the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra; the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra; Bonnie Raitt; The Paul Winter Consort; Josh Groban, and Don Henley.

Kieran has a reputation as an outstanding teacher of Irish music, beginning with the years he spent as a teacher of the pipes in Dublin, Ireland, at Na Píobairí Uilleann, The Pipers' Club. Since then, Kieran's reputation as a teacher of Irish music has grown, and has included stints at the Willie Clancy Summer School (County Clare, Ireland), The Swannanoa Gathering in Asheville, NC, the Catskills Irish Arts Week, The Augusta Heritage Festival (WV), and at various pipers' tionols and musical gatherings around the country.

Kieran also has worked extensively in designing music for the stage, and was the featured piper for Seamus Egan’s score for the Irish dance show “Dancing on Dangerous Ground” which premiered in 2000 in London’s West End. In 2002, Kieran appeared in a musical role in the Sam Mendes film Road to Perdition. In 2006/2007, Kieran was the featured uilleann pipes and tin whistle player on Broadway for the new musical The Pirate Queen, written by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, and produced by John McColgan and Moya Doherty of Riverdance. Also in 2007, Kieran will be seen in as a featured performer on a PBS special presentation with the Irish choral group ANÚNA, entitled Celtic Origins.
