In this five-part subscribers-only discussion, supported with video and photos, Grey delves into his career as a piper, his composing techniques, pipe band philosophies and his unending quest for the next new, different and innovative thing. Never content to stand still, Grey, after almost 40 years in piping, continues to push the boundaries of the music, while constantly remaining grounded in and aware of its long traditions.
