First Friday Coffeehouse features Cosy Sheridan

By Staff | Dec 2, 2016

The Dec. 2 First Friday Coffeehouse will feature the musical diversity, virtuoso guitar and provocative songwriting talent of Cosy Sheridan. The event is held at Trinity Orchard House. Doors open for social time and open mic sign-up at 7 p.m.

All open mic participants should be there early to get a slot to perform at one of the area`s premier listening rooms.

Cosy Sheridan has been called “one of the finest and most thoughtful singer/songwriters of the modern folk era.” She first appeared on the national scene in 1992 when she won the songwriting contests at The Kerrville Folk Festival and The Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Since then she has released 10 CDs, written a one-woman-show and her music has appeared in books and film.

She has taught songwriting, guitar and performance workshops at music camps for the past 15 years, including The Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and The Swannanoa Gathering. She is the director of The Moab Folk Camp in Moab, Utah.

Backed by the strong rhythms and harmonies of her bass player Charlie Koch, Sheridan’s concerts are full of energy and emotionality.

Her songs are carefully crafted – and often shorter than the average folk song. She plays a percussive bluesy guitar style, often in open tunings and occasionally with multiple capos on the guitar. Visit www.cosysheridan.com.

Enjoy a great evening of music and fellowship. Snacks and refreshments served.

Trinity Orchard House is located at 4599 Shepherdstown Road. A $10 donation per person is requested. For more information, contact Steve Warner at 304-676-4422 or visit on Facebook.
