RIP Rosalie Sorrels.

I am sorry to report that our mother did pass away last night. She was surrounded with love and music, and is free from all the pain. Our mother has sung this song at the wakes of many of her friends and family, now we share her song in her honor. We will be planning a memorial service in Boise to allow mom's many friends to say goodbye, and we (the family) will let all know when this will be after we have had a chance to grieve the loss of our beloved mother. We are very fortunate to have so many friends through mom's work, and it helps a lot! This is sad news, but we have prepared ourselves for this too. We love you all and thank you for the continued love and support throughout are lives. Keep on Rocking, It's a Beautiful Boat.

Very Much Love Holly, Shelley, and Kevin

Sad, but what a life. That voice those songs. She fought hard and told the tales of the people.

1. I'm so sorry


She was one of my favorites. I have loved and listened to her music for years - after stumbling on one of her tapes at the Harvard Coop in the 80's. I bought it without knowing anything about her, but there she was - in the folk section.

I have followed her music since then. My deepest condolences. What an amazing woman.
