Come on down to the Sunapee Community Coffeehouse Friday, February 6th at 7pm to see folk singer-songwriter Cosy Sheridan. The coffeehouse is located downstairs at the Sunapee Methodist Church, 9 Lower Main Street, Sunapee, NH. Coffee, tea and baked goods will be available. A hat will be passed around for donations to the musician.
Cosy Sheridan's satirical viewpoints on everyday life have earned her a place in the hearts of fans across the country. Her concerts are wide-ranging explorations of modern mythology (meet Hades the Biker), love songs for adults, contemporary philosophy for the thoughtfully-minded and her signature parody on aging and women. A former NH native, she 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. West Side Folk called her "one of the era's finest and most thoughtful singer-songwriters".
