ELLY WININGER Appearing Thu Feb 26th 2015 at 7:30pm

Tickets: $8

Award winning acoustic blues musician Elly Wininger is winding up a tour of Southern states this month and found herself reluctant to return to the hard Northern winter is experiencing this winter. Her solution is a treat for Asheville area music fans with an added date in the cozy ambiance of the White Horse Black Mountain.

Her special guest for the evening will be mandolin wizard Bob Jaramillo.

A 2014 inductee into the NY Blues Hall of Fame, Elly Wininger has been called a ‘folk-blues legend’ who is ‘beyond category.” With a cornucopia of American styles at her fingertips on her acoustic and National guitars, Elly has won numerous awards for her songwriting, and performed in clubs and at folk festivals since her start in the Greenwich Village folk revival where, encouraged by her guitar teacher, the legendary David Bromberg, she played blues and ragtime guitar in the basket houses.

Elly played opening night at CBGB and performed there regularly, as well as in other NYC venues such as Kenny’s Castaways, Dr. Generosity’s, Folk City and the Bitter End. Elly is also a composer and producer, and her series of music documentaries, "Rockin' the Boat," won several awards, including one from the United Nations. Her guitar and vocal work, as well as her original songs, have been featured in theater productions, films, video games, and on the Clio award-winning public service campaign "Friends."

Elly makes her home in Woodstock, NY, and can be heard on WIOX 91.3 Roxbury where she hosts 2 radio shows: "Catskill Cabaradio" and "The Front Burner." In addition to teaching guitar, Elly alsoconducts workshops assisting people of all ages and abilities in the creative songwriting process.
