George Winston: a genius who excels not only in musical talent, but also, especially, in kindness and compassion

George Winston After-Concert Performance

An in-depth article will follow but I just wanted to say real quick what a magical evening we had with George Winston last night. I knew he was a musical genius because we’ve listened to his music for thirty years and have seen him perform before, but I had no idea he is as kind and compassionate — and funny! really funny! — as he is. I suspected he was; but last night it was confirmed.

What a wonderful evening.

Amazing…

Guess who’s the lucky guy…

Me is, that’s who!

Because as soon as I hit the “Publish” button, the fam and I are heading right out the door to Ephrata, PA to see the one and only George Winston perform.

In the words of my loving and lovely wife, “I am stoked!”

The wife and I were oh so fortunate to see him perform several years ago in York, PA, and what an incredible performance it was. Winston does things with his instruments — and not just the piano, we’re talking that and a guitar and a harmonica and a couple of others I’m not even sure what they were — that I’ve never seen done before.

I’m talking like playing the piano strings like a guitar, playing the guitar like every square inch of it is to be used to make magical melodic sounds, and playing each song as if he were possessed with every Mad Musical Muse there ever was.

Man*…

He really is a musical genius.

And the best part is you would never guess it by his appearance and demeanor.

He dresses often in just a flannel shirt and jeans…classic.

And he’s a pretty nice dude to, apparently.

My loving and lovely wife writes for a Japanese travel website and Mr Winston has agreed to a brief interview and photo shoot with her after the performance tonight.

Pretty cool, huh?!

So, you can pretty much expect you’ll be hearing about this performance afterwards.

Dude*, I am so stoked!

But not even nearly as stoked as the wife…

Gonna be fun — I guarantee it!

George Winston
You can tell by the looks of that cracked CD case that we (especially the wife) have been long-time fans of Winston’s. I’m talking since way back when in the Eighties…
