Montana PBS 11th & Grant with Eric Funk – Philip Aaberg
A recipient of the Montana Governor’s Award for the Arts and a Grammy Nominee, pianist Philip Aaberg performs in this episode. Aaberg, who was born and raised in Chester, Mont., moved back to the highline and his hometown of Chester from California. After years of international recognition as a performing and recording artist, Aaberg brings his magic and charisma to the screen featuring his own compositions for solo piano, drawing largely from his newest CD “Blue West.” The energized, versatile, and simultaneously forceful and tender music of Philip Aaberg reveals to his fans why this rising star is always rising.
