Music Monday: George Winston’s “Thanksgiving”

You may not figure me for the sentimental sort, but when I realized I could post a song titled “Thanksgiving” during the week of Thanksgiving? I absolutely could not pass up the opportunity.

But never fear: this is a beautiful piano solo that I’ve loved ever since I was introduced to George Winston’s work, which was, well, forever ago. “Thanksgiving” is the very first song off of his album December, and I’ve seen Winston perform twice in concert in hopes to hear him play this very piece. No luck yet (he has a rather maddening method to what music he performs where), but I’ll always have the song available to listen to whenever I want.

So if you’re feeling stressed out this week, especially if you’re in the United States and are dealing with scheduling and meals and family and even worse, Black Friday, take a moment, listen to this song, and remember to breathe.

Like it? Love it? Hate it? Sound off below!

Reminder: Music Monday is about the music, not the videos. Videos are just the medium I’m using to share the music, and some videos aren’t actually videos at all. Enjoy the songs, but if YouTube forces you to watch some sort of advertisement before you can get to the music, please be patient.
