Cohn comes home to GWS

Jill Cohn has brought her humanistic brand of Americana to Glenwood Springs before, but her performance from 8:30-11:30 at the Glenwood Springs Brew Garden is her debut as a resident.

After years of touring the country, Cohn decided on Glenwood has a home base less than a year ago.

“I’ve been drawn to the valley. I feel like my music connects with people here, and being a solo traveler for most of my career, it stuck out to me as a place where people are genuinely friendly,” she said. “I’ve always lived in a city, so I didn’t know how I’d do in a small town, but it’s been wonderful. When I’m not on tour, it’s nice to be somewhere that’s just relaxing.”

The new venue in the Brew Garden — 115 Sixth St. — helps as well.

“It’s great to have something within walking distance,” Cohn said. “I think the more us musicians support the venues, the more enthusiasm there will be about hosting live music in Glenwood.”

Her performance will draw heavily from her newest album, “Heartstrings Touching Ground,” with themes like crossing the border and surviving tough economic times, as well as more upbeat tunes.

“I write songs about things I see and hear about and things that touch my heart,” she said. “I feel like I’ve hit my stride with it and finally grown into the songs.”
