Elly Wininger


Elly Wininger is a finger style acoustic and slide guitar player, award-winning songwriter, and member of the New York Blues Hall of Fame. Encouraged by her guitar teacher David Bromberg, Elly started playing blues and ragtime guitar in the basket houses of Greenwich Village in the 60s. She played opening night at CBGB and performed there regularly, as well as in other New York City venues such as Kenny’s Castaways, Dr. Generosity’s, Folk City, and The Bitter End. Elly says: “As I tour and host radio shows from my home base in Woodstock, I am always inspired by the beauty of the people and places around me. I have come to understand that the power of music comes from sharing and connecting. The quality of connection that can be created with music is what keeps me going.”
