NORTH COUNTY COALITION FOR THE ARTS
BRAWLEY — Grammy Award-winning instrumentalist George Winston will perform a solo piano concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Palmer Performing Arts Center here.
The concert also is a benefit for the Imperial Valley Food Bank, and Winston is asking that audience members bring canned and non-perishable food items to the event. Proceeds from the sale of his CDs and posters at the concert will be donated to the food bank by Winston.
Best-known for his impressionistic solo piano renderings of his reflections on the changing seasons, Winston explores new styles and other instruments; he plays both guitar and slack key guitar. (Slack key is the name for the venerable finger-picked guitar tradition that began in Hawaii in the early 1800s and predated the steel guitar by more than 60 years.)
