Philip Aaberg is an American pianist, keyboardist and composer.

This Montana-born keyboardist and composer studied music at Harvard on a Leonard Bernstein scholarship before paying his dues on the San Francisco blues scene. Aaberg's wide range of abilities led to guest appearances on over 80 albums. He also toured with artists as varied as Peter Gabriel, John Hiatt, Kenny Rogers, and the Doobie Brothers.
