Cosy Sheridan, Saturday, Saturday May 6, 8:00 PM
What a pleasure it is to bring Cosy back here! It's been six years since she was here last. Now that she's moved back to the east coast I hope we'll see more of her!
Cosy Sheridan first caught the attention of national folk audiences in 1992 when she won the New Folk songwriting contests at The Kerrville Folk Festival and The Telluride Bluegrass Festival; The Boston Globe wrote “She is now being called one of the best new singer/songwriters.”
A Cosy Sheridan concert is a wide-ranging exploration: 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. She will have uspondering the ills of the world one minute and then rolling in our seats with laughter the next. Backed by the strong rhythms and harmonies of her bass player Charlie Koch, Sheridan’s concerts are full of energy and emotionality. “Cosy writes intelligent and clever lyrics with stickable melodies,” wrote Sing Out Magazine. She plays a percussive bluesy guitar style - often in open tunings and occasionally with 2 or more capos on the guitar. Learn more about Cosy at her website where you'll find links to her songs and a new music video!
