Who is Caroline Herring?
November 19, 2003
Caroline Herring has left clues in her songs as to who she is. She is a person who can recall the past by looking at old farm field. Where she now spots rusty nails, she sees the hardworking sharecroppers and abundant harvests of the past. While she looks down on Las Vegas from an airplane, she finds it easy to criticize the rich...and then herself. Through her description of a woman's anger in the rural south not so long ago we know that she resists social conformity. She goes out on a Saturday night to dance, but hopes for more. You've probably never met Caroline, but after listening to her songs, you'll feel like you've know her for years, or you wish you had. Meet Caroline by listening to the songs on Folk Alley, which I've just described, from her debut called Wellspring.
