Sorrels and Co.: Salt of the Earth
Program Description

Nanci Griffith immortalized Rosalie Sorrels in her hit song, "Ford Econoline:" "She's the salt of the earth... with a voice like wine/cruisin' along in that Ford Econoline." Now, the "Traveling Lady" of folk music, is going to go off the road after a career of some 40 years.

MultiStage Productions and WGBH celebrate her remarkable career with a farewell concert at Sanders Theatre, where Sorrels will be joined by some of ther friends including David Bromberg, Christine Lavin, Jean Ritchie, Peggy Seeger and Loudon Wainwright III. Additionally, Sorrels will be accompanied by band members Madcat Ruth on harmonica; Roman Baran, Dobro and guitar; guitarist and bassist Mitch Greenhill, bassist Tony Markellis and Teresina Huxtable on piano.
