Rosalie Sorrels

Rosalie Sorrels is a collector and performer of traditional American folk songs, but in all her music, traditional and original, there is a deeply personal vein. Sorrels' music is about loss and survival. When she was 16, she had an illegal abortion; when she was 17, she gave up a child for adoption. She married and had five children, left her husband, and struggled to raise her family alone, and then saw her eldest child take his own life. Finally, she suffered a cerebral aneurysm in 1988. Through all her suffering, Sorrels has found solace in her ability to make music, an ability that has enraptured audiences for years.

Sorrels' musical career began in the 1950s, when, as a way of alleviating the tedium of domestic life, she took a class on American folk songs while living in Salt Lake City. Work for that class resulted in her first album, Folk Songs of Utah & Idaho. Her albums since then have been a mix of traditional and original material; always sung with great passion and personal feeling, they have become increasingly autobiographical. ~ Leon Jackson

I have seen Rosalie a few times in Sun Valley, Idaho (Ketchum) at the local book store around 2010. I bought her CD and love all the songs. I wish I had seen her with Utah Phillips in the 1960's. She says she lives in Boise in a log cabin that her Dad built ! I sure hope I can see her again before she retires. She is so down to earth!

Dlynch isn't actually serous is he?

She also once said she has a child in prison and it hurts to the bone. I think it was the first Kate Wolf Festival I ever went to. I was walking back to my tent and a woman was singing at one of the very small stages. I heard her sing a line about starlight on the rails and I was hooked. Rosalie was one of the few artists who was always invited back. She would sing the closing song of the festival, But now we haven't seen her in 2 years and some say it's a health issue.

Personal challenges make the story of our lives.. Rosalie's openness touches various threads of our lives.. so glad to know her through her music.

What does the personal challenges have to do with music?

A very poorly written bio of a musician.

Stick to music and leave out people's personal problems.

Of the many albums of hers which I enjoy, Strangers in Another Country seems to me to be at once the strongest, most varied and most uniformly "presented" one. I listen to it at least twice a month, even after having had it since it was new in '08
