Join us 4 - 7PM on Saturday, August 14 as Boscawen’s High Street Coffee House moves outside for a "party in the park" featuring Cosy Sheridan.
Join us at Church Park, located at 273 King Street Boscawen NH for this family friendly event. The High Street Coffee House is a “Open Mic” venue, welcoming musicians, poets and comedians to take the stage for two to three songs. Music starts at 4pm and the event typically wraps up around 7pm.
Admission to the High Street Coffee House is always FREE, though a donation basket will be passed and you can make a donation anytime by visiting https://www.boscawencongregationalchurch.com/donate-today.html. The grills will be going and refreshments will be sold. Please remember to bring your own chair and umbrella or awning for shade.
Cosy Sheridan first appeared on the national folk scene in 1992 when she won the songwriting contests at The Kerrville Folk Festival and The Telluride Bluegrass Festival. The Boston Globe wrote: ”she is now being called one of the best new singer/songwriters”.
She has been on the road ever since, playing clubs, concert halls and coffeehouses across the country. “You can't make it into double digits, and continue touring for twenty or so years, unless you know what you're doing, and do it well,” said The Chicago Examiner.
She continues to be one of the most prolific songwriters in the folk scene. My Fence & My Neighbor was number four on the folk radio charts in 2018. Pretty Bird was was listed in Sing Out Magazine’s Great CDs of 2014.
She was a voice student at Berklee College of Music, and a guitar student of legendary finger style players Eric Schoenberg and Guy Van Duser. She has played at Carnegie Hall, The Cowgirl Hall of Fame and on the Jerry Lewis Telethon.
Backed by the strong rhythms and harmonies of her bass player Charlie Koch, she plays a percussive bluesy guitar style, often in open tunings and occasionally with two capos on the guitar neck.
She teaches classes in songwriting, performance and guitar at workshops and adult music camps across the country. She is the director of Moab Folk Camp in Moab, Utah.
