Cosy Sheridan mixes a gorgeous, trained voice with skillful fingerpicking and a songwriter’s knack for being exquisitely honest, feisty and wickedly funny. Her insightful and humanitarian commentaries on life, love, and culture make every performance a cherished evening and each song a joy to hear.
Cosy Sheridan first appeared on the national folk scene in 1992 when she won the 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.” 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,” said The Chicago Examiner.
Sheridan continues to be one of the most prolific songwriters in the folk scene. My Fence & My Neighbor was number four on the folk radio charts in 2018. Pretty Bird was listed inSing Out Magazine’s Great CDs of 2014. She was a voice student at Berklee College of Music, and a guitar student of legendary fingerstyle players Eric Schoenberg and Guy Van Duser. She has played at Carnegie Hall, The Cowgirl Hall of Fame and on the Jerry Lewis Telethon.
She teaches 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. It is with great pleasure the Folk Project welcomes one of its favorite performers and wonderful friends.
