Rj Cowdery - Sisters Folk Festival - Free Concert Series
Rj Cowdery is a Columbus, Ohio based artist who has solidified her place as a standout of the next generation of performing songwriters.
Though she wrote her first songs as a teenager, Cowdery took a circuitous path to becoming a full-time artist. She experienced exciting creative breakthroughs followed by distractions and obligations that took her away from her lifelong dream of being a professional singer/songwriter. But it has all paid off in recent years.
Cowdery’s past few years on the folk festival trail have been nothing short of extraordinary. She has received major accolades at some of the most prestigious festivals in the U.S., including wins at the 2007 Mountain Stage NewSong, 2008 Kerrville New Folk, and 2008 Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist competitions and The Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at the Sisters Folk Festival in Oregon.
