National awarding-winning songwriter Cosy Sheridan and her wry, insightful songs have been showcased everywhere from Carnegie Hall to The Dr. Demento Show. WIth "Live At CedarHouse", recorded by Gerry Putman in North Sutton, NH, audiences everywhere can get a taste of Cosy's live performance skills and see why she's been called "one of the era's finest and most thoughtful singer-songwriters." Acoustic Guitar wrote, "If I were going to throw an all-girl dinner party at which I wanted to laugh and cry from the hors d'oeuvres to the chocolate pudding, Cosy Sheridan is the first woman I'd invite." Cosy Sheridan appeared on the national folk scene in 1992, winning the songwriting contests at the Kerrville Folk and the Telluride Bluegrass Festivals, and releasing her critically acclaimed CD "Quietly Led" on Waterbug Records. Folk Music Quarterly wrote: "When she's accepting her Grammy, we can say we knew her when." Since then she's been on the road, or home in Moab, Utah writing songs in her 1955 Airstream trailer-turned-studio. With: Cosy Sheridan (guitar, vocals), Kent Allyn (piano, bass, electric guitar, vocals), and TR Ritchie (bass, vocals).

"Cosy Sheridan is one of the best undiscovered singer/songwriters around. While this CD contains mostly live performances of previous material it captures the joy and seriousiness of the artist. The "band" is a plus. With addtional vocals and accents that helps drive the points home.
There are a lot of high points, one is the lead up to "Grand Design" where she manages to tie together almost every childhood story she every heard. "My Mother's House" contains imagery that every can relate to.
This is a full concert. If you've never seen her live at least now you can hear what you are missing."

"Cosy Sheridan's "Live at Cedarhouse" is a joy to experience on many levels, from her poignant verses, guitar playing, and her vocals - all first rate. I dare anyone to not get at least a little choked up listening to "George and His 88 Keys" or "The Land of 10,000 Mothers." Her songs really hit a lot of nerves. They feel good.
Between cuts we hear the stories behind the songs and the interaction with their audience so it feels like you're actually attending the performance, and also brings you closer to the music and the band, with humor and remembrances of Cosy's past.
Last, the recording itself is lively and dynamic. A real treat for the ears and senses. I'm sure you will enjoy this album!"
