To benefit the KC chapter of music-education effort Guitars in the Classroom, George Winston pushes aside his piano for an all-guitar solo show tomorrow night. Winston, whose piano albums helped define the Windham Hill sound in the 1980s, is also a longtime champion of Hawaiian slack-key guitar. Expect a luau's worth of that finger-style playing as well as some Appalachian sounds.

Winston plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday, October 30, at Unity Temple on the Plaza (717 West 47th Street). Advance tickets cost $15 for adults and $10 for children ($20 and $15 at the door) Get 'em through BrownPaperTickets.com (800-838-3006) or Unity Temple (816-561-4466). The show also benefits Harvesters, which will have barrels in the lobby to collect nonperishable food items for local food banks.
