COUSINS' BLUES: NY BLUES HALL OF FAMERS ELLY WININGER AND BEKI BRINDLE
COUSINS' BLUES: NY BLUES HALL OF FAMERS ELLY WININGER AND BEKI BRINDLE
When Beki Brindle and Elly Wininger were inducted into the NY Blues Hall of Fame on the
same night in 2014, they had no idea they were related. They knew they shared an affinity for
the blues- classic blues- with Elly tending toward the acoustic country blues and Beki favoring
the Chicago electric styles. As it turns out, in addition to this mutual enthusiasm, they share
some common genes as well, as they discovered independently researching their ancestry. Come
join kindred spirits, Beki Brindle and Elly Wininger for "Cousins' Blues," an evening of passion
filled music at The Colony Woodstock on Wednesday, October 10th at 8PM. Both Elly and Beki
have new CDs that will be available that night.
