George Winston talks with Bill Nutt

Pianist George Winston’s influences run the gamut from Ray Manzarek of the Doors to Vince Guaraldi (the composer of the music for the Peanuts TV specials).  On March 28, he will perform at the Presbyterian Church of Chatham as part of the Sanctuary Concert series.  He also wants audience members to bring nonperishable food as a donation to local food pantries.  Winston talks with Bill Nutt about his music and why it is important to him to give back.  For more information on the concert, go to www.sanctuaryconcerts.org.
