On Saturday, August 11 at 8 p.m. RiverFolk Concerts welcomes singer-songwriter-Cosy Sheridan at The Cooperage, 1030 Main Street, Honesdale, PA. A songwriting workshop is offered at 3 p.m., limited to 20 attendees, for $30.
Cosy Sheridan has been called “one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful singer-songwriters.” She first caught the attention of national folk audiences in 1992 when she won both the Kerrville Folk Festival’s NewSong Award and The Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Contest, and then released her critically acclaimed CD Quietly Led on Waterbug Records. Almost 20 years later she is one of the most respected touring musicians on the folk circuit as well as a favorite teacher at many adult music camps
In 2011 when she released her tenth CD, The Horse King, 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. Rarely do you find a CD where every song is memorable. It happens, just not often. It happens here.”
“Sheridan is frank, feisty, sublimely and devilishly funny. She fuses myth with modern culture; Persephone with Botox,” said The Cornell Folksong Society. For the past 18 years, she has taught classes in songwriting, performance and guitar at workshops and adult music camps across the country such as The Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and The Swannanoa Gathering. In 2008 she co-founded The Moab Folk Camp in southeastern Utah with TR Ritchie.
