Humans of the Catskills: Elly Wininger

Elly Wininger

Journey to the Catskills:

When I was a very young child, I spent summers at my grandparents’ home in Woodstock. Ever since, the Catskills have been calling me home. I moved here from Brooklyn in 2001 so I could hear myself think and practice.


I am a musician and a producer.


I have always loved radio. I’ve produced music documentaries for public radio and hosted radio shows including “Catskill Cabaradio” which is about to return to its live format at the Pine Hill Community Center this fall.

Happiness Is:

Happiness is my three sons and their children.

Favorite Dish:

I love a homemade (not necessarily by me) pasta with lots of fresh ingredients tossed in.

Ideal Country Home:

I love my 100-year-old home in the woods. Ideally, someone else does all the maintenance!
