George Winston brings 'Restless Wind' to Munhall PA / the almanac

Bookmark and Share

With the 50th anniversary of Woodstock approaching this summer, it's fitting that pianist George Winston includes one of the festival's most iconic songs on his latest album. "Restless Wind," due for release on May 3, contains a medley that includes Country Joe McDonald's "I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die Rag," minus the expletive of expletives that Joe led the half-million-strong crowd in chanting. Another Woodstock alumnus, Stephen Stills, is represented with "For What It's Worth," the 1967 hit he wrote for Buffalo Springfield. And Winston covers his favorite band of the Classic Rock era by performing the Doors' "Unknown Soldier."

His tour in support of "Restless Wind" and its already-released opening track, the original "Autumn Wind (Pixie #11)," was set to bring Winston to the Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall in Munhall for a concert at 8 p.m. April 5. Proceeds benefit the creative arts program of Wesley Family Services, which has several regional locations, including Washington and South Fayette Township.  photo by Todd V. Wolfson)
