BRATTLEBORO -- Chestnut Hill House Concerts presents singer-songwriters Cosy Sheridan and Julie Snow on Saturday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m.

Sheridan has been called "one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful singer-songwriters." She first caught the attention of national folk audiences in 1992 when she won both the Kerrville Folk Festival’s NewFolk Award and The Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Contest, then released her critically-acclaimed debut CD "Quietly Led" on Waterbug Records.

She has released nine CDs, her music is featured in the Robert Fulghum multi-media novel "The Third Wish" and she tours throughout the U.S. Her concerts are wide-ranging explorations of modern mythology, love songs for adults, contemporary philosophy for the thoughtfully-minded and her signature parody on aging and women. Throughout this journey, her lyrical dexterity is backed by her distinctive, percussive bluesy-gospel guitar style.

With kudos from Rachel Maddow and Lui Collins, Snow has been turning heads on the music scene for decades. She wrote the song "Baptism of Fire," on one of Collins’ first albums. For more information, visit www.juliesnowsongs.com.
