George Winston grew up mainly in Montana, and also spent his later formative years in Mississippi and Florida. During this time, his favorite music was instrumental rock and instrumental R&B, including Floyd Cramer, the Ventures, Booker T & The MG's, Jimmy Smith, and many more. Inspired by R&B, jazz, blues and rock (especially the Doors), George began playing organ in 1967. In 1971 he switched to the acoustic piano after hearing recordings from the 1920s and the 1930s by the legendary stride pianists Thomas "Fats" Waller and the late Teddy Wilson. In addition to working on stride piano, he also at this time came up with this own style of melodic instrumental music on solo piano, called folk piano. In 1972, he recorded his first solo piano album, Ballads and Blues 1972, for the late guitarist John Fahey's Takoma label.

Since then, George has released thirteen solo piano albums: Autumn (1980), Winter Into Spring (1982), December (1982), Summer (1991), Forest (1994), Linus & Lucy—The Music of Vince Guaraldi (1996), Plains (1999), which was inspired by his Eastern Montana upbringing, Night Divides the Day—The Music of The Doors (2002), Montana—A Love Story (2004), Gulf Coast Blues & Impressions—A Hurricane Relief Benefit (2006), Love Will Come—The Music of Vince Guaraldi, Vol. 2 (2010), Gulf Coast Blues & Impressions 2—A Louisiana Wetlands Benefit (2012), and Spring Carousel—A Cancer Research Benefit (2016). The songs from Spring Carousel were composed in 2013 while Winston was recovering from a bone marrow transplant.

This concert will feature George's Winter Show, which will include melodic fall and winter type songs, some of Vince Guaraldi's Peanuts pieces, pieces inspired by the New Orleans piano and the stride piano traditions, and songs from his upcoming albums.
