Bonnie Dobson, the Canadian folk music songwriter, singer and guitarist, best known in the 1960s for composing “(Walk Me Out in the) Morning Dew,” returns to the Mariposa Folk Festival on July 7 where her song will be inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.

"Morning Dew" has had many cover recordings over the years by the likes of Jeff Beck, Allman Brothers and, more recently, Serena Ryder.

Dobson first performed her anti-nuke protest ballad, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, at the inaugural Mariposa Festival in 1961. In 2013, she performed the song with Robert Plant at the Royal Festival Hall.
