This month’s Tremedal Concert features folk singer Cosy Sheridan.
The concert organizers wrote:
She came to prominence in 1992 when she won the songwriting contest at The Kerrville Folk Festival and The Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
The Boston Globe wrote, “She is now being called one of the best new singer/songwriters,” upon release of her CD Quietly Led on Waterbug Records.
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.
The Tremedal Concerts benefit the Watertown–El Salvador Sister City Project. Proceeds after expenses support the sister community of Nueva Esperanza, El Salvador, and regional projects in Chalatenango Province.
Cosy Sheridan will perform on Saturday, Novmber 18, 8 p.m. at First Parish Unitarian Church, Watertown. Tickets are $20 door, $15 advance (click here).
