Sheridan has been called one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful songwriters. Her CD, Pretty Bird, was listed in Sing Out Magazine’s great CDs of 2014.
A resident of Moab from 1994 to 2014, Sheridan now lives in the Boston area, but returns to Folk Camp. She is also on the board of the Moab Folk Festival, and has performed at the festival many times.
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 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,” wrote The Chicago Examiner.
Her concerts are a wide-ranging exploration of love songs for adults, practical philosophy and her signature parodies on women and aging, said a press release from her agents. 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 or more capos on the guitar neck .
Tickets for the concert are $12 and will be available at the door. For more information call 603-731-3240.
