William Ackerman founded Windham Hill Records in Palo Alto in 1975. The label's audiophile recordings were a run-away success with critics and audiences alike. Musicians including Michael Hedges, George Winston, Will Ackerman, Alex de Grassi, Barbara Higbie and Darol Anger and their group Montreux, Liz Story, Mark Isham, and Tuck and Patty quickly became internationally recognized. The name "Windham Hill" became synonymous with the best in acoustic music in the 1980s and 90s. Windham Hill's 10 Winter Solstice compilation recordings, selling in the many millions, "changed people's conceptions of seasonal music" (John Diliberto, Echoes radio show host). The Winter Solstice Concerts bring the music of Windham Hill full circle, 40 years after it was originally conceived on the Stanford campus.
