 Lisa Winter

Lisa Winter is a singer-songwriter from Upstate, NY.  Americana soul, woven with new folk, embedded in gospel roots. Participating in a high school talent show sparked a passion for writing and performing... She has applied her heart and soul to the craft, resulting in interesting, inspiring songs.  Her self-taught style of guitar delivers interesting syncopation, finger picking, and  creative expression.

Her appearances include The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, The Sidewalk Cafe NYC, and New Orleans House of Blues.  As she travels with her music, house concerts are among her favorite ways to share her music, connecting on a distinctly personal level with her listeners.  " For me", Lisa says,  "I find joy in meeting and learning about people and their lives.  I have written several songs about their powerful stories."

I was born in Brooklyn. My parents loved Jazz, my grandparents loved Italian and Spanish folk songs, I loved rock and roll. I went to high school in Manhattan, and quickly discovered in 1963, that if I got off the subway at Union Square instead of taking it all the way to Brooklyn, I could hang around Greenwich Village for most of the evening listening to folk music. One of my best friends in college was doing a doctoral dissertation on Blues music, and another was doing a doctoral dissertation on liturgical music. I've played in folk bands, acoustic blues bands, and fiddle bands, and solo. As a result of all this, I know a LOT of songs. Who knows which ones will push to the front on any given day.
