Pre-Order on iTunes!! Out Nov 23 Beyond excited to share that Philip Glass’s label Orange Mountain Music is releasing my 50th anniversary bagpipe version of the minimalist milestone, Two Pages. As a huge Glass fan, this is a dream come true: I’ve slow-cooked this arrangement since Nonesuch released The historical recording in 1993. Proud of this and enjoy!! #bucketlist
