An Evening with George Winston
Presented by The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
December 3 @ 7:30PM and December 4, 2019 @ 8PM
George Winston returns to The Sheen Center after his sold out shows in April 2017 and November 2018. He will once again be playing favorite pieces spanning his five-decade career, which includes nearly 20 solo albums and soundtracks.
Celebrated pianist George Winston released his 15th solo piano album, Restless Wind, via Dancing Cat Records/RCA Records on May 3, 2019. 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 15 million albums. A tireless road warrior playing nearly 100 concerts annually, live performance for Winston is akin to breathing. 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 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.
Commencing on March 21, 2019 George Winston embarked on a U.S. tour to celebrate the release of Restless Wind throughout the East Coast, West Coast, and Midwest.
