With several projects on the go notably the ‘follow up’ to the stunning Orchestral score of the late Martyn Bennetts ‘Grit’ debut at Celtic Connections in 2015 on the  10 anniversary of Martyn’s passing when asked at the time why he did not –‘just use the album’ Greg replied “What happens with albums and iconic people is that you don’t interact with them any more. Martyn is like a beautiful mountain that people drive to the foot of and admire, but we don’t go up it. The result is that people don’t play his music. That was my overwhelming desire: I want to play this piece, I want people to hear this piece, and I want it to be a live experience.” He has done it once again with  Martyn’s – Bothy Culture
