Event

Cosy Sheridan
        Cosy Sheridan first caught the attention of national folk audiences  in 1992 when she won the songwriting contests at both The Kerrville Folk Festival and   The Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
      When she released her critically acclaimed CD Quietly Led on Waterbug Records,  The Boston Globe wrote She is now being called one of the best new singer/songwriters.

      She has been on the road ever since  playing clubs, concert halls and coffeehouses from Seattle to Berkeley and across I-80 to Omaha, Chicago and then to Boston where she now makes her home. She has played houseconcerts in Iowa and to a full house at Carnegie Hall. On her new CD she writes of these years on the road in the song Woody Guthrie Watch Over Me.
      Her 2014 release, Pretty Bird, was chosen as one of Sing Out Magazine's "Great CDs of 2014.   West Side Folk dubbed her one of the eras finest and most thoughtful songwriters.  
Her concerts are wide-ranging explorations: love songs for adults and practical philosophy for  a complicated world. She has written about the stock market crash of 2008 and fall-out from uranium mining in the  American southwest. She has re-written greek myths: Persephone runs away with Hades the biker. And then there are her signature parodies on aging and women. Her lyrical dexterity is backed by her distinctive percussive guitar style.
For the past 20 years she has taught classes in songwriting, performance and guitar at workshops and adult music camps across the country at such camps as  the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and The Swannanoa Gathering. In 2008 she co-founded the Moab Folk Camp in Moab Utah.

Cosy with Charlie live 2016
"Her user-friendly  musical philosophy sets her happily apart from the myopic, self-involved songwriters...She is a wonderfully lively, very funny and enormously amiable entertainer with a keen and wicked eye for the excesses of our fast-food, tv-happy  and noisome culture." - The Boston Globe
"A buddhist monk in a 12-step program trapped in the body of a singer/songwriter." - The Albuquerque Journal
"Sheridan is frank, feisty, sublimely and devilishly funny. She fuses myth with modern culture, Persephone with Botox." - Cornell Folksong Society
