George Winston is undeniably a household name. He’s inspired fans and musicians alike with his singular solo acoustic piano songs for more than 40 years while selling upwards of 15 million albums. A tireless road warrior playing nearly 100 concerts annually, Winston finds live performance akin to breathing. George’s music is evocative, offering us all a chance to take a step back from our perpetually busy lives and let our minds adventurously wander. George Winston’s classic albums “Autumn” and “December,” are perennial favorites, along with “Winter into Spring,” “Summer,” 2017’s “Spring Carousel – A Cancer Research Benefit,” two volumes of the compositions of Vince Guaraldi, two volumes of benefit albums for the Gulf Coast disasters, and six other solo piano albums. He recently released his 16th solo piano album, “Night.” George’s compositions extend solace with an idiosyncratic grace.
