603 Folk: An Evening of NH Based Singer Songwriters
NH’s Best Singer-Songwriters
Join us for an amazing evening featuring 3 of the finest songwriters the Granite State has to offer.
Cosy Sheridan has been called one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful songwriters, and also ‘a buddhist monk trapped in the body of a singer-songwriter’. Her music regularly tops the folk radio charts. Her CD, Pretty Bird, was listed among Sing Out Magazine’s Great CDs of 2014. Her concerts are wide-ranging explorations: ragtime guitar and social satire, modern renditions of mythology ( meet Hades the Biker ) and tales of modern adulthood. Her alter ego, Chlamydia, sometimes appears with songs such as “Botox Tango” or “Multiply Pierced.” The Cornell Folksong Society wrote: “Sheridan is frank, feisty, sublimely and devilishly funny. She fuses myth with modern culture; Persephone with Botox.”
Just a girl, a guitar, and a lifetime of stories put into song. Kate Redgate’s music is a mixture of rock and roll, folk, roots-rock and country. The result of a high school dropout using time well spent absorbing her early influences: the ones she heard as a kid on the loudspeakers at the Illinois Boots and Saddle Club, the ones she saved money and hitched rides to buy recordings of at the local record store, and the ones she waited to hear on the radio, cassette recorder button ready, so she could rewind and playback songs over and over learning chords and writing down lyrics. The Stones and the Grateful Dead, X and the Replacements, Pretenders and Joni Mitchell, Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris… You get the drift.
Jon Nolan lives in NH, where summers are a precious reprieve from months of bitter cold and a few muddy weeks in between, but also where fall is a consolation prize to the end of summer. A longtime frontman of New England alt-country pioneers Say ZuZu, Jon explores the dreamier, pop-infused parts of his Americana sensibility in his solo material.
