Cosy Sheridan & Sloan Wainwright
The Eighth Step at Proctors, Saturday, 3/11, 7:30 PM
Underground at Proctors will be transformed into wonderfully intimate space for the latest Eighth Step show, which will feature singer-songwriters Cosy Sheridan and Sloan Wainwright. Sheridan won songwriting awards in 1992 at festivals in Telluride and Kerrville and hasn’t looked back; she’s been writing and singing and touring for the last 25 years, marrying personal insight and social commentary to her trademark percussive guitar style. Sloan Wainwright (pictured), as you can guess from the name, comes from musical royalty; she’s related to a gang of other famous Wainwrights. She’s released seven CDs, has a bundle of ASCAP songwriting awards, and has appeared with everyone from Tom Paxton to Ani DiFranco. In other words, this is a killer Eighth Step pairing.
