"The Pomegranate Seed" is a two-act narrative, with a beautifully written and diverse song score that chronicles one woman's journey into the symbolic underworld and her emergence as a more vibrant and empowered woman.
Written with humor and compassion, wisdom and vulnerability, "The Pomegranate Seed" frames one woman's life mythically as she moves into her own enlightenment, finding meaning in life's experiences.
Sheridan's music has been heard from Carnegie Hall to the Dr. Demento Show and she is a favorite on acoustic music radio shows. She has won top honors at the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
