Cosy Sheridan in Felton
Deb and I went to a house concert in Felton last night,
and saw and heard
Cosy Sheridan again.
saw her at nearby
Henfling's Firehouse Tavern
Earlier in the day, I was still feeling a bit under the weather, so I
was hanging around the house all day; I hadn't listened to
her albums in a while, so I put on all three and listened
while I did some paperwork. While sorta half-listening for
one song that I recalled, "Broken Place", which has a catchy
chorus, "Quietly Led" came on. There's one similar phrase
that made me think for a moment that QL was BP.
During the concert, Cosy played those two songs back to back,
saying that she'd never done that before because BP was what
came out when she set out to rewrite QL three years later.
Very nice concert, nice to see her again. I had met her
over ten years ago, when a co-worker friend was showing her
what the brand-new World-Wide-Web was all about.
Last night, Cosy brought in a news flash that we hadn't heard:
there was a
fire at Henfling's
on Friday morning. Hopefully not serious enough to
close the place.
The Sentinel article says
Luckily, the tavern is aptly named.
There's a fire station next door.
"They just walked over and assisted us," kitchen manager
Kylan Oaks quipped after it was clear damage was relatively minor ...
(I think that's a typo -- unless he changed it,
his name is Dylan, not Kylan.)
Cosy said that she'd heard that Henfling's'
folk series' scheduled gigs may be picked up
by the Trout Farm Inn, just over past
Quail Hollow Park in Zayante canyon.
By the way, the sentinel article also says that Henfling's had
been mentioned in the New York Times that morning, so I dug up
It's kind of funny how much a city-dweller's vision of Santa Cruz
this is. Of the eleven "things to do", only one
is at all nature-related, and the redwoods are mentioned
only because Henfling's is under them.
Oh, well, I guess that's better than getting the place
overrun with New Yorkers seeking nature.
