Rosalie Sorrels left her Idaho home at nineteen, married and had five children, then divorced and took them on the road with her while she traveled the country as a folksinger and storyteller. She now lives in her fatherÆs cabin in the mountains outside Boise and continues to release a batch of records.
Her latest recording is a tribute to Malvina Reynolds in celebration of the songwriting iconoclastÆs 100th birthday. Now over 60 herself, Sorrels has the hipness and youth of a woman for whom age is inconsequential. She sings of a life brimming with adventure as well as tragedy; Borderline Heart is her latest release.
