George primarily performs three styles of music: melodic folk piano, New Orleans R&B piano, and stride piano. He also incorporates a few pieces on solo guitar and solo harmonica into his live performances.
Since 1972, George has released thirteen solo piano albums including the Grammy Award-winning Forest in 1994. Other titles include: Autumn, the beloved December; Winter Into Spring, Summer; Linus & Lucy-The Music of Vince Guaraldi; and Plains, which was inspired by his Eastern Montana upbringing, as well as Love Will Come-The Music Of Vince Guaraldi Vol 2, Night Divides The Day–The Music of the Doors, Montana-A Love Story, and Gulf Coast Blues & Impressions-A Hurricane Relief Benefit, and Gulf Coast Blues & Impressions Vol 2-A Louisiana Wetlands Benefit. He also recorded the solo piano soundtrack for the children’s story The Velveteen Rabbit narrated by Meryl Streep. He is currently putting the finishing touches on two new full-length recordings, Bay Of Gold-The Music of Vince Guaraldi and Spring Carousel.
George’s shows in Cincinnati will feature his 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 & the stride piano traditions, and songs from his upcoming releases.
Since 1986, George has been raising money for food banks and service organizations and will continue to do so by working with a local food bank in every tour market to hold a canned food drive at the show and also by donating 100% of proceeds from the sale of his merchandise to the organization. The food bank for this show is the St. George Interfaith Food Pantry.
