 Begin your New Year’s Eve with class, elegance and inspiration. Following the seasons and topographies as his muse, pianist George Winston is a master and player of a variety of styles. Greats such as Professor Longhair, James Booker and Henry Butler influence his New Orleans R&B piano. He has interpreted solo pieces from Frank Zappa to melodic pianist Philip Aaberg. For stride piano he pulls from the likes of Thomas “Fats” Waller and Teddy Wilson. Armed with Multi-Platinum, Platinum, and Gold albums as well as a Grammy for Forest, George plays over 100 solo concerts a year, performing songs from his seasonal favorites Autumn, December, Winter Into Spring, and Summer as well as Peanuts pieces from his Vince Guaraldi tribute albums. The Bend Bulletin says of George, “The popular, unassuming pianist’s songs are pastoral wonders that purposefully evoke nature and landscapes in a way that’s as understated as it is beautiful.” Join George this holiday season in supporting a local food bank with a gift of canned food. There will be collection baskets at the entrance.
