Sloan Wainwright (with Glen) & Cosy Sheridan in Concert
Singer-songwriters Sloan Wainwright and Cosy Sheridan will share the stage at Unity Hall on Saturday, April 29 for an evening of song and friendship.
Long-time friends, they share the joy of each other’s music and artistry on stage in this upbeat, energetic, and moving performance.
Known for her warm and welcoming contralto voice which could “fell a redwood”, Sloan Wainwright is a member of that Wainwright Family Tree which includes Loudon Wainwright (her brother) and Rufus (her nephew). Defying standard categorization, Sloan has a command of a variety of American musical styles: pop, folk, jazz, and blues. Her incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs. She performs with exciting guitarist/vocalist Glen Roethel.
Cosy Sheridan has been called one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful songwriters. She first appeared on the national folk scene when she won the songwriting contests at The Kerrville Folk Festival and The Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 1992 and released her critically acclaimed CD Quietly Led. The Albuquerque Journal called her “a buddhist monk trapped in the body of a singer-songwriter.” 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 2 or more capos on the guitar. “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,” wrote The Chicago Examiner.
Tickets are $18 in advance and are on sale now through Eventbrite and go on sale Monday, April 3 at 10 am at Adirondack Cheese Company, 8190 Rt. 12 in Barneveld. Tickets the night of the concert are $18 for Members and $20 for non-Members at the box office starting at 7:15 pm.
