Wininger, a 2014 inductee into the NY Blues Hall of Fame, got her start in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village and has deep roots in Woodstock. Her CD, Little Red Wagon, hit #8 on the Folk Music DJ Chart in 2018. Having played historic NYC venues, Elly now tours nationally and is an annual feature at the Woodstock Invitational Luthier's Showcase. Festival promoter Kurt Henry called Elly a “folk-blues legend.” She was the first artist to perform at CBGB and was offered a recording contract with Red Robin Records at age 16.
