George Winston grew up mainly in Montana, and also spent his later formative years in Mississippi and Florida. During this time, his favorite music was instrumental rock and instrumental R&B, including Floyd Cramer, the Vetures, Booker T & The MG’s, Jimmy Smith, and many more. Inspired by R&B, jazz, Blues and rock (especially the Doors), George began playing organ in 1967. In 1971 he switched to the acoustic piano after hearing recordings from the 1920s and the 1930s by the legendary stride pianists Thomas “Fats” Waller and the late Teddy Wilson. In addition to working on stride piano, he also at this time came up with his own style of melodic instrumental music on solo piano, called folk piano. Since 1972, George has released fifteen solo piano albums. His latest solo piano albums are RESTLESS WIND, and SPRING CAROUSEL—A CANCER RESEARCH BENEFIT. He also recorded the soundtracks for three video projects produced by the late George Levenson of Informed Democracy (www.informeddemocracy.com): a solo guitar soundtrack for SADAKO AND THE THOUSAND PAPER CRANES, as well as piano, guitar, and harmonica solos for PUMPKIN CIRCLE and BREAD COMES TO LIFE. In addition, he recorded the solo piano soundtrack for the Rabbit Ears video of the children’s story, THE VELVETEEN RABBIT (www.rabbitears.com), and the soundtrack for the Peanuts episode, THIS IS AMERICA CHARLIE BROWN: THE BIRTH OF THE CONSTITUTION. George will be playing his Winter program on this evening.
All of George’s concerts are benefits, most for local food banks. He will be donating 100% of the artist's profit from merch sales. At the food bank's discretion, we may also accept non-perishable food items in collection bins at the venue. If the food bank is not equipped to process food donations, we will host a digital donation drive and send further details when that is defined.
