Get one of 75 seats available at the KAFM Radio Room for a concert with award-winning songwriter Cosy Sheridan and her partner T.R. Ritchie.

The two will perform an acoustic set at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5, at the Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave.

Sheridan has released seven albums and wrote a one-woman show titled “The Pomegranate Seed — An Exploration of Appetite, Body-Image and Myth in Modern Culture.” In 1992 she won song-writing contests at the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

Curve magazine describes Sheridan as “a sparkling acoustic-folk journey from beginning to end,” and the Cornell Folksong Society found her “frank, feisty, sublimely and devilishly funny. She fuses myth with modern culture — Persephone with Botox.”

Tickets are $15.

Call 241-8801, ext. 223 for information or go to kafmradio.org.
