AARP Montana is delighted to present Philip Aaberg, a Montana-born keyboardist and composer with a musical career as diverse and expansive as the Montana landscape he calls home. After graduating from Harvard, Aaberg moved to San Francisco, California, to make pop and rock records. He played solo and in small combos in San Francisco blues clubs until joining the Elvin Bishop Group in 1973. Aaberg later toured with Peter Gabriel and recorded with the Doobie Brothers, Kenny Rogers and Vince Gill.
Philip Aaberg began composing his own music seriously in 1985. Shortly after, he signed with Windham Hill Records and released the influential and critically-applauded solo album "High Plains," which garnered him international acclaim. It was a solo piano suite that brought elements of blues, bluegrass, rock, and new music to his meditative compositions. It showcased his eclectic musical background. It was an immediate hit. He and his family currently reside in Helena.
The event is held to celebrate volunteers and the power of people working together to build stronger communities. Through volunteerism, we discover the power to unite in making a difference – we are thrilled to honor all Montana volunteers with this special concert.
