Cosy Sheridan has been called ‘one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful singer/songwriters’. She 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. Since then she has released 10 CDs, written a one-woman-show, and her music has appeared in books and film.

She has taught songwriting, guitar and performance workshops at music camps for the past 15 years, including The Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and The Swannanoa Gathering. She is the director of The Moab Folk Camp in Moab, Utah.

Susan Cattaneo has been a songwriting professor at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music for 13 years. She’s written songs covered by numerous artists in Nashville, and her tunes helped launch the careers of Jillian Cardanelli and Erica Nicole.

Cattaneo, the singer-songwriter, has released three albums of mostly upbeat, catchy pop-country music, ‘Brave and Wild,’ in 2009, ‘Heaven to Heartache’ in 2011 and ‘Little Blue Sky’ in 2012. You’ll hear a blend of country, rock and soul with sparkles of blues and folk ‘ music that would slide into the comfort zone for fans of Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter or Sheryl Crow.
