Michael Grey: the pipes|drums Interview – Part 3 Published: July 31, 2012

In this third part of Michael Grey: the pipes|drums Interview, we delve directly into the composition side of his career: how he approaches composing, the need to have a professional attitude about copyright and royalties, and his take on the great composers like Donald MacLeod, G.S. McLennan, John McLellan and Gordon Duncan. Grey discusses the notion of the "accepted competition repertoire," and the need to expand attitudes to be more inclusive, while also citing what he feels are the greatest tunes ever penned.
