Sloan Wainwright and Cosy Sheridan will be Rockin’ The Harvey School Friday night. Singing songs and swapping stories. A not to be missed evening of uplifting music from two award winning singer songwriters who are also best buddies. Nationally acclaimed but born and bred in Bedford. Sloan Wainwright is a what I would call a Pure bred Townie.
Songwriters Sloan Wainwright and Cosy Sheridan will be sharing a show at The Harvey School on Friday March 10 at 8 pm.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.” She has written about the stock market crash of 2008, uranium mining in the American southwest. 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.” Her lyrical dexterity is backed by her distinctive percussive guitar style.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.
