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 power house guitarist Steve Murphy.
Songwriter and guitarist Cosy Sheridan has been called “one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful songwriters.” Her latest CD, Pretty Bird, was listed among Sing Out Magazine’s “Great CDs of 2014.” Her 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. 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. She first caught the attention of national folk audiences in 1992 when she won the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival songwriting contests. The Boston Globe dubbed her ‘one of the best new singer/songwriters.”
Sloan and Cosy have toured together extensively in the midwest and northeast. Long time friends, they share a joy of each other’s music and artistry on stage. The show is upbeat, energetic and moving.
