Hello NERFA Folks,
I am coming to NERFA this year, and I'd love to find a couple of guerrilla showcases. I am a singer/songwriter. I will have my bass player Charlie Koch with me. We are well-mannered and timely.

If you would like to hear my music, please go to .

Thank you
Cosy Sheridan

Songwriter and guitarist Cosy Sheridan has been called one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful songwriters. Her CD, Pretty Bird, was listed in Sing Out Magazine’s Great CDs of 2014. Her concerts are full of energy and emotionality - and her songs are carefully crafted.
“Cosy writes intelligent and clever lyrics with stickable melodies,” wrote Sing Out. 

She first caught the attention of national folk audiences in 1992 when she won the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival songwriting contests. The Boston Globe wrote “She is now being called one of the best new singer/songwriters.”

She has been on the road ever since, playing clubs, concert halls and coffeehouses across the country. “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.

Backed by the strong rhythms and harmonies of her bass player Charlie Koch, she plays a percussive bluesy guitar style  - often in open tunings and occasionally with 2 or more capos on the guitar neck . Her concerts are a wide-ranging exploration of love songs for adults, practical philosophy and break-out moments such as her song Multiply Pierced. She has written about the stock market crash of 2008, the history of Hannibal, 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.

For the past 20 years she has taught 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.

“Rarely do you find a cd where every song is memorable. It happens, just not often. It happens here.” - Chicago Examiner reviewing The Horse King.
