May 14, 2019

Boise-born Rosalie Sorrels made a name for herself on the folk singer circuit of the late 1950s. Her first major gig was at the 1966 Newport Folk Festival and she has been featured on more than 30 albums. Sorrels passed away in 2017 and today, Rosalie's son, Kevin, is crowdsourcing funds to put on The First Rosalie Sorrels Annual Memorial Festival. Kevin Sorrels joins Idaho Matters to talk about his mother's legacy and how she was influenced by Idaho, the state she called home.
