GEORGE WINSTON

McIntyre Hall Presents

Sunday, September 22    2:00pm

 

George Winston has inspired fans and musicians alike with his singular solo acoustic piano songs for more than 40 years while selling 15 million albums. Winston’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. Restless Wind (his 15th solo piano album, Restless Wind, via Dancing Cat Records/RCA Records on May 3, 2019) is a portrayal of Winston’s place in a chaotic world – his compositions extend solace with an idiosyncratic grace.

 

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, as well as two volumes of the compositions of Vince Guaraldi, two volumes of benefit albums for the Gulf Coast disasters, and six other solo piano albums.

 

“Pianist George Winston is among today’s most popular interpreters of American song, celebrated for turning sociological observations on American culture into compositions that weave a beautiful tapestry of folk, early jazz, R&B and contemporary classical.” ~ JAZZIZ Magazine

 

This concert is made possible in part by a grant from the Washington State Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
