Rosalie Sorrels became the grande dame of the American folk scene the hard way. In the mid-1960s she left her husband in Idaho and hit the road with her five children -- daunting enough -- and was determined to work as a folk singer -- just as the folk revival was being washed away under the tidal wave of Beatles-era rock and pop. But somehow, through it all, she not only succeeded, becoming as famous as anyone does in a marginalized genre, but triumphed: respected as an artist, revered as an exemplary human being.

My Last Go Round is a live concert recorded on March 23, 2002, on the Harvard campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to honor her decision to leave the road and return to a quieter life in the countryside of her native state. In her early 70s, Sorrels's voice is as good and wise as ever, and maybe even better and even smarter. The tone of the disc is both celebratory and bittersweet, perhaps never so much as in her reading of the ambivalent Utah Phillips retrospective on the Western frontier experience, "The Telling Takes Me Home." In another powerful moment, she recalls the now-gone Dave Van Ronk and dedicates another superb Phillips song, "I Think of You," to the memory of that great man. Guests include such folk luminaries, past and present, as Jean Ritchie, Patrick Sky, Loudon Wainwright III, Peggy Seeger, and Christine Lavin. The tribute proved as loving and musically rich as anyone -- participant, audience member, or CD listener -- ever could hope for.

A couple of years ago in a review of the late Utah Phillips' "Starlight On The Rails" Songbook I noted that, in my youth in the early 1960's when I came of musical age, I had to hear the old blues singers that I was crazy for second-hand because most of them were retired, dead or no longer performing for health or some other reason. I drew the contrast to my then expanding interest in the burgeoning folk revival where one could see one's near contemporaries perform live at a local coffeehouse, school auditorium or concert hall. Sadly, since I made that remark more of the folk icons of my youth have passed away, including old Utah, have long ago given up performing due to ill health or as is the case of the artist under review, Rosalie Sorrels, decided to retire. They do so reluctantly in most cases, and we are reluctant to see them go, but the rigors of the "back roads" in folk music are just as tough as those of the is leftist political counterpart.

This review of the farewell concert at Harvard University in the Spring of 2002 by Rosalie and her long time friends (except Utah Phillips, a friend of over fifty years, who I believe was in ill-health at the time and Dave Van Ronk who had died a few weeks before he was to appear at the concert) is unusual from most reviews I do in that I was in the audience that night. I dearly missed not seeing old Dave, as he was initally a primary reason fro my attendnce, but the lineup for the show mostly made up for that deeply-felt lost.

And what were we treated to? Well, Dave Bromberg `subbed' for Dave Van Ronk for one thing. Rosalie did, appropriately, "My Last Go Round" and "Traveling Lady" and finished up with "Old Devil Time" as well as a couple of Utah classics, "The Telling Takes Me Home" and "I Think Of You".
