Cosy Sheridan has been called one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful songwriters. She first appeared on the national folk scene when she won the songwriting contests at The Kerrville Folk Festival and The Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 1992 and released her critically acclaimed CD Quietly Led. The Albuquerque Journal called her “a Buddhist monk trapped in the body of a singer-songwriter.” Backed by the strong rhythms and harmonies of her bass player Charlie Koch, she plays a percussive bluesy style of guitar – often in open tunings and occasionally with 2 or more capos on the guitar. “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. Her CD, My Fence & My Neighbor was in the top 10 on folk radio in 2018. Her release “Pretty Bird” was among Sing Out Magazine’s “Great cds of 2014”. She has performed at Carnegie Hall, The Cowgirl Hall of Fame, and on the Jerry Lewis Telethon. Cosy 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. “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. “Cosy writes intelligent and clever lyrics with stickable melodies.” - Sing Out Magazine The venue is wheelchair accessible. Gwynedd Friends Coffeehouse is a not-for-profit outreach of Gwynedd Friends Meeting with an all-volunteer staff.
