☼ ☼ ☼ Cosy Sheridan at the Colonial Corner

MFS is partnering with The Colonial Theater to present a longtime friend, Cosy Sheridan at the Colonial Corner, in Keene on Saturday, May 19th, at 7:30. Tickets are $15 and available through the Colonial box-office. See thecolonial.org/event/colonial-corner-cosy-sheridan/.

A Cosy Sheridan concert is a wide-ranging exploration: 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. 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. “Cosy writes intelligent and clever lyrics with stickable melodies,” wrote Sing Out Magazine. She plays a percussive bluesy guitar style – often in open tunings and occasionally with 2 or more capos on the guitar.
