Okay, so if you don’t know who George Winston is, you definitely should give his album December a listen. Even if it’s just playing in the background while you’re making dinner or studying for your next exam, December, as well as a number of his albums, lends itself to be extremely approachable and endearing. Developing a style called “rural folk piano”, the Michigan born pianist manages to take really ordinary sounds and arrange them in a pretty extraordinary way. George Winston, one of the most recognized solo pianists in the world, has released 13 solo piano albums since 1972. His next recordings, to be released in 2017, Spring Carousel- A Cancer Research Benefit. He is currently mainly touring and performing live concerts. Since 1986, George has been raising money for food banks and service organizations in every community he visits while on tour. He will continue to raise awareness through Canned Food Drives and information about the local organizations available in the lobby. The CD and merchandise proceeds will benefit the local Food bank or Organization in each market.
