Folksy Americana 

Rosalie Sorrels

Along with fellow folk troubadour Utah Phillips, Rosalie Sorrels is one of the few links we have with a fast-vanishing sense of America as a land of real people connected to the places where they live. Her songs and stories are filled with the usual stuff — love, struggle, loss — where not everything is perfect, but there is a real sense of hand-carved life, aided by wisdom gained from more than four decades of performing folk music. Her most recent recording, My Last Go Round, featured guest fans from Peggy Seeger to Loudon Wainwright III. A national folk treasure, Sorrels returns to the Freight on Sunday, June 17. 8 p.m. $21.50. TheFreight.org
