Image for Songwriter Cosy Sheridan to Perform at Concord Community Music School

Sep 23, 2015

Songwriter and guitarist Cosy Sheridan will perform in concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 2 at the Concord Community Music School, in downtown Concord, NH. She will be joined by Music School faculty member Kent Allyn on keyboard and Charlie Koch on bass.

Sheridan, who grew up in Concord, has been touring nationally since 1992, when she released her critically acclaimed CD titled Quietly Led. The Boston Globe named her “one of the best new singer songwriters.” She has been performing with Kent Allyn since 1989, at venues including Carnegie Hall and the Jerry Lewis Telethon.

Her latest CD, Pretty Bird, was chosen as “one of the great CDs of 2014” by Sing Out Magazine. In this recent release, Sheridan’s songs explore the changes that brought her back to New England after living for 20 years in the Southwest. Pretty Bird charted in the Top 100 Songs of 2014 on folk radio’s “Folk DJ” list.

Sheridan grew up in a musical family. Her father, Charles Sheridan, played trombone in the Freese Brothers Band, and her sister, Amy Sheridan, sings with the Concord Chorale.
