This set of 13 songs, including 4 original compositions, brings a contemporary set of aesthetics, rooted in tradition, to a variety of blues and gospel styles. You.ll hear influences of Cajun, ragtime, old timey, jazz and country, affirming the proximity and cross pollination of all these styles, and their commonality in actual practice, both today and historically. We Americans grew up together with an incredible richness And variety of musics. Elly and Earwig Music Company hope this album encourages an appreciation and enjoyment of that living diversity.
“On every track of 'The Blues Never End' Elly Wininger displays her talents as a singer, songwriter and guitarist with a natural ease, which makes the album a gem... not only for lovers of acoustic blues, but also for all music fans.”
“In a career spanning several decades, there arrives a defining moment when the solos, the duos, the trios, the productions and all the experience and awards come together in an essential work. LITTLE RED WAGON is that moment for Elly Wininger. This collection of 13 songs integrates all the elements and aspects of Elly's multi-faceted talent.”
“After 5 decades of playing the acoustic guitar, this is finally the CD that expresses my passion for the instrument in its many glorious voices. From the country blues I have always loved, to original songs on the flat top and slide guitar, to some unusual covers of both well known and little known songs, this CD runs the gamut of American folk styles. And yes, there are vocals too, including an original sing-along (The Samsara Drinking Song) recorded live at a cafe the Hudson Valley. Blues, finger picking, slide guitar, you name it, it's here.”
