Full Bio

Cosy Sheridan first caught the attention of national folk audiences  in 1992 when she won the songwriting contests at  both the Kerrville Folk Festival and The Telluride Bluegrass Festival. She has been touring, writing and recording ever since.  West Side Folk called her “one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful songwriters.” Her latest CD, Pretty Bird, was chosen as one of Sing Out Magazine’s “Great CDs of 2014.”

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.

In her latest  CD, Pretty Bird, Cosy writes about all the changes that brought her back to New England from the southwest: the end of a long term partnership with songwriter TR Ritchie, meeting her current husband,  moving back to Boston, and Ritchie’s death in 2014. Pretty Bird charted in the Top 100 songs of 2014 on folk radio’s “Folk DJ” list.

For the past 20 years she has taught classes in songwriting, performance and guitar at workshops and adult music camps across the country at such camps as  the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and The Swannanoa Gathering. In 2008 she co-founded the Moab Folk Camp in Moab Utah.
