Piano Legend George Winston
To Perform March 8 at The Palladium
Master musician George Winston will perform at the Palladium Theater at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 8, as part of the “Mahaffey on the Move” concert series. Winston’s melodic folk piano, through the platinum-selling albums Autumn, December, Winter Into Spring and Linus and Lucy – The Music of Vince Guaraldi, has established a creative musical legacy. The versatile Winston’s catalogue also includes Night Divides the Day – The Music of the Doors, Montana – A Love Story, Gulf Coast Blues and Impressions 1 & 2 – overall 14 recordings that stretch and expand on the solo piano vocabulary.
Scheduled for release on March 31, Spring Carousel – A Cancer Research Benefit is his latest recorded project. Sometimes concentrating on seven-string acoustic guitar, Hawaiian slack-key guitar and harmonica, Winston has always refused to strictly categorize his music. “I just play the songs the best I can,” he says, “inspired by the seasons and the topographies and regions, and, occasionally, by sociological elements, and try to improve as a player over time.”
