Cosy Sheridan with Special Guest Jake Klar
Cosy 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. She has been touring, writing and recording ever since. West Side Folk called her “one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful songwriters.” Her latest CD, Pretty Bird, was included in Sing Out Magazine’s “Great CDs of 2014”.
For the past 20 years she has taught classes in songwriting, performance and guitar at workshops and adult music camps across the country including the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, California Coast Music Camp and The Swannanoa Gathering. In 2008 she co-founded the Moab Folk Camp in Moab Utah.
Working in the gritty, grinding, blues, ballad and rock traditions, Jake Klar releases his EP “Crescent St. Blues”, produced by Chris Freeman of the band Parsonsfield. Klar gives us a collection of songs that were variously inspired by a three-year, hard-luck-hard-love journey through the American Southwest, chased down by a single shot of winter in London. An emerging talent, Klar explores in his music the inner workings of a man enduring the hardships of the road, the weather, hideous Texan spiders, and an irresistible love that almost always, like Klar himself, goes south.
Enjoy a moderately priced dinner catered by Bruno’s Restaurant before the show. Choices include: Eggplant Rollatini, Chicken Francese, Pizza, Coffee, Tea, Hot Mulled Cider, Water, and Homemade Desserts
