Cosy Sheridan
Opening act: Michael Shay with Julay Brooks

Songwriter and guitarist Cosy Sheridan has been called one of the eras finest and most thoughtful songwriters.  Her CD, Pretty Bird, was listed in Sing Out Magazines Great CDs of 2014. Her concerts are full of energy and emotionality - and her songs are carefully crafted.
Cosy writes intelligent and clever lyrics with stickable melodies, wrote Sing Out.

She first caught the attention of national folk audiences in 1992 when she won the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival songwriting contests. 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 across the country.  You can't make it into double digits, and continue touring for twenty or so years, unless you know what you're doing, and do it well, wrote  The Chicago Examiner.

Cosy wrote the title track to her latest CD  My Fence & My Neighbor in the weeks after the January 2017 presidential inauguration - when she was experiencing a need for connection and community: When the neighbors first moved in, Im the one who built the fence We are living in interesting times / the sky falls everyday This morning I dont need my fence; I need my neighbor on the other side.  A video  of the song received 30,000 views in a matter of days.

Her concerts are a wide-ranging exploration of love songs for adults, practical philosophy and her signature parodies on women and aging .  Backed by the strong rhythms and harmonies of her bass player Charlie Koch, she plays a percussive bluesy guitar style  - often in open tunings and occasionally with 2 or more capos on the guitar neck . She also  wrote a one-woman show for young women with eating disorders called The Pomegranate Seed.

For the past 20 years she has taught classes in songwriting, performance and guitar at workshops and adult music camps across the country. She is the director  of Moab Folk Camp in Moab, Utah.

Rarely do you find a cd where every song is memorable. It happens, just not often. It happens here.  -  Chicago Examiner reviewing The Horse King.
