“It’s folk music all the time!” That’s one reason Elena is so pleased to be working with Folk Alley. She first connected with her inner folkie while working as an assistant producer for Minnesota Public Radio’s “A Prairie Home Companion” with Garrison Keillor. She also worked as the sound engineer for Keillor’s daily literary program, “The Writer’s Almanac.” From Minnesota, she headed to the wilds of Maine to work as the music director for Maine Public Broadcasting, and then to the bustling city life of Washington, DC where she programmed the classical music channels for Sirius XM Satellite Radio. Currently, Elena works as a national host and producer for one of the nation’s largest classical music services — C24 which, since it’s based in Minnesota, brings her home.
