Last Go Round

“It’s usually a big dark room, and there’s this woman onstage with this beautiful, rich, velvety rosalie1voice who’s telling you this story or singing you a song, and then she stops and she tells a little story, and then the song continues. It’s like you’re sitting around a campfire and there’s this great wise shaman. And it completely transports you out of yourself.”

She wrote this one up at Kesey’s place, sitting around a campfire, after he’d told the tale, that would become his final novel: Last Go Round.

    Thank you for paying tribute and introducing to me a surprisingly unique voice.

    From your links …

    “It’s full and rich, with a plaintive vibrato that thins out delicately on top, unless she’s pushing for volume, in which case it becomes — if such a thing is possible — an evocative, stirring bray.”

    “She spent most of her career in small clubs and often performed, gratis, at benefits for a variety of social causes.”

    I look forward to exploring her contribution further.

    Nice storytelling …

    I guess I don’t know how this format works. The two youtubes I linked to are different than the two that are visible as youtubes in the first comment.
