American folk singer Rosalie Sorrels may not be wildly famous but since the 1960s she's developed a near cult like following. Her admirers describe Sorrels as someone who has lived the life she now sings about. In fact, she was immortalized in a song by Nanci Griffith describing Sorrels as "Salt of the earth.....with a voice like wine." .Her newest CD is "Borderline Heart" by Green Linnet Records Inc. The book "Way Out in Idaho" is a collection of her poems, songs and recipes.
The folk singer made a career as a musician after the breakup of her marriage. Now a resident of the Delaware Water Gap, she is helping raise money to fund a private investigation of a series of axe murders in that town. A member of the musical community, Eddie Joubert, was one of the victims. Sorrels performs some of her songs a cappella in studio.
