Annandale United Methodist Church is honored to host award-winning Oregon pianist, John Nilsen during the 8:30 worship service Sunday, May 19, at 250 Oak Ave. N. in Annandale.
As an accomplished pianist, guitarist, songwriter, lyricist, and vocalist, Nilsen tours nationally and internationally and has played 250 performances annually for the past 25 years. He splits his performances between playing solo piano concerts, performing with the John Nilsen Trio, and with SWIMFISH which is a rock band. He founded Magic Wing, his own recording label in 1987, and will soon finish his 20th recording. Nilsen has given back by teaching songwriting and musical performance to students in schools throughout the country over the past 25 years.
