Whidbey Island Center for the Arts will present self-described “rural folk piano” player George Winston at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Winston is returning to Whidbey to play old favorites and new music recorded in early 2019. He was among the earliest and most successful proponents of the contemporary instrumental genre and inspired fans and musicians with his solo acoustic piano songs for over 40 years.

“George Winston is undeniably a household name,” a press release states. “He’s inspired fans and musicians alike with his singular solo acoustic piano songs for more than 40 years while selling 15 million albums. A tireless road warrior playing nearly 100 concerts annually, live performance for Winston is akin to breathing.”

Winston asked that attendees support the food bank, Good Cheer, by bringing a donation of canned food to the concert.
