“Cosy Sheridan has been called one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful singer-songwriters. She 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.
“Since then she has released ten CDs, written a one-woman show, and her music has appeared in books and film. She has taught songwriting, guitar and performance workshops at music camps for the past 15 years, including The Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and The Swannanoa Gathering.”
Cosy is the director of The Moab Folk Camp in Moab, Utah.
Her 2014 release, Pretty Bird, was chosen as one of Sing Out Magazine’s “Great CDs of 2014.” West Side Folkdubbed her “one of the era’s 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.”

Concerts at the ranch are small not for profit (an understatement, says Robin!) social events attended by about 40 friends, neighbors and family. About 20 additional seats are available by arrangement to interested listeners.
The ranch is located in Ahwahnee, just ten minutes from Oakhurst at 45680 Forest Ridge Drive.
Just a few house rules attendees are asked to follow please: no alcohol, drugs or smoking and no children under 16. The Coolwater Concert Series is sponsored in part by Tenaya Lodge.
As always, there will be a variety of foods and non-alcoholic beverages available at no extra cost.
