NY Blues Hall of Fame Guitarist/Singer Elly Wininger combines forces with a Master Folk-Noir Songwriter Dave Kearney to create “Small Engine” …chugging forward- steadily and soulfully persistent. Think Bonnie Raitt teams up with Johnny Cash. Great songs, great chops, a great show.
Dave Kearney and Elly Wininger met at a party in Phoenicia, NY. They found that they not only loved the same songs, but that their interpretations meshed to create exciting new versions. Both powerful songwriters, when their original songs took flight with the same synergy, they knew they had something worth sharing. They have been performing ever since, in clubs, coffeehouses and concert halls, as Small Engine.
