Pianist and composer Philip Aaberg has played with the Boston Pops, at the Marlboro Chamber Music Festival, and with pop and blues musicians like Peter Gabriel, Elvin Bishop, and the Doobie Brothers. His piano playing is featured on more than 200 recordings by other artists. But Aaberg acknowledges his Montana "Hi-line" origins with pride. Not only does he live in the town where he grew up, but until late in her life, he continued studying with his early piano teacher.
