The Redwoods in Yosemite and Coolwater Ranch are thrilled to present singer-songwriter Cosy Sheridan, performing at Coolwater Ranch in Ahwahnee on Saturday, November 23rd at 7:00 pm.
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 Chicago Examiner wrote “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.”
She was a voice student at Berklee College of Music, and a guitar student of legendary finger style players Eric Schoenberg and Guy Van Duser. She has played at Carnegie Hall, The Cowgirl Hall of Fame and on the Jerry Lewis Telethon.
Backed by the strong rhythms and harmonies of her bass player Charlie Koch, she plays a percussive bluesy guitar style with a charming dose of whimsy and a boatload of smarts in her lyrics. She also 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.
“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
