Elly Wininger, a 2014 Inductee into the NY Blues Hall of Fame, has been called a ‘folk-blues legend’ who is ‘beyond category.” A guitarist with a cornucopia of American styles at her fingertips, Elly has won numerous awards for her songwriting and production, and has performed at clubs, concerts and folk festivals nationally. She can be heard annually at the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase. Elly is also a composer and producer. Her series of music documentaries 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, games, and on the Clio award-winning public service campaign. Elly’s critically acclaimed CDs “Back Eddy Blues”, and “Part Time Paradise” will be followed this fall with the release of “Little Red Wagon” with 9 original songs plus several interpretations of traditional songs. When not touring, Elly hosts Catskill Cabaradio on WIOX 91.3FM, and works with people of all ages and abilities to write their own songs.
New York Blues Hall of Fame 2014 Inductee, Beki Brindle was discovered at Indiana University by Rick Danko and Richard Manuel of “The Band” while she was Blues Legend James “Yank” Rachell’s lead guitarist. A consummate player at an early age, Beki toured with Jerry Lee Lewis as his guitarist. A native of Indiana, she spent time living in Ireland where she shared the stage with Hot House Flowers, The Waterboys, members of U2 and Thin Lizzy, The Pogues and Francie Conway, as well as recording & touring with blues artists such as Carey Bell, Johnny Mars, Joe Louis Walker, Mary Stokes Band, Tampa Red, Fenton Robinson and more. She was also commissioned by Bono of U2 to create and run a blues workshop on Irish National Television.
In 2016, Beki’s blues album, “All Kinds of Beki” released on Random Chance Records, was much-lauded, including a stellar review from Living Blues Magazine. In November, Beki and her band recorded a "Live in The Studio" album in Staffordshire, UK, featuring
original, classic and obscure songs by artists such as Willie Dixon, Ike Turner, The Band, Lightnin’ Hopkins and Yank Rachell.
