    about sweetgrass music

    Sweetgrass Music was founded in 1974 in Oakland by Grammy-nominated composer and pianist, Philip Aaberg. In 2002, Aaberg and Sweetgrass Music migrated back to Chester, Montana where he was born and raised. Today, Sweetgrass Music is owned and operated by Aaberg and his journalism-trained wife, Patty. The pair now have full control over his music—from the writing to the distribution. Since returning to his hometown, Aaberg's musical focus has transitioned to sonic illustrations of places and landscapes, with a particular emphasis on Montana. His recordings are performed in a studio he designed and built inside a grain bin, which he famously hauled into town. Over the years, Sweetgrass Music has developed a strong following and today ships all over the United States and even as far away as England, Germany and New Zealand.
