Release: Welch plays Philip Glass - Two Pages EP on Glass's Orange Mountain Music

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


"Although Glass’s basic five-tone theme in “Two Pages” (1968) does not color outside the lines, Welch unleashes the dramatic power of its unrelenting drive" - San Diego Story
