Cosy Sheridan first caught national folk audiences in 1992 when she won songwriting contests at both the Kerrville Folk and Telluride Bluegrass Festivals. She has been on the road ever since. Her concerts are wide-ranging explorations: love songs for adults and practical philosophy for a complicated world, including parodies on aging and women. Her lyrical dexterity is backed by her distinctive percussive guitar style. Cosy has taught songwriting, performance and guitar classes including the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, the Swannanoa Gathering plus co-founding the Moab Folk Camp. “She is a wonderfully lively, very funny and enormously amiable entertainer with a keen and wicked eye for the excesses of our fast-food, tv-happy and noisome culture.” – The Boston Globe. “Sheridan is frank, feisty, sublimely and devilishly funny. She fuses myth with modern culture, Persephone with Botox.” – Cornell Folksong Society. Cosy is joined by her husband, bass player Charlie Koch, who formerly fronted the R+B band‘Breaktime’.

Diane Battistello -nice 368KB Late Bloomer, Diane Battistello was a closet musician for many decades before experimenting with open mics. That makes her clear, compelling voice and original music that can be wistful and political – ranging from childhood in New England to exploitation in the Congo all the more noteworthy. Diane’s new CD “Green Mountain Blue” was released last year.
