Songwriter Bonnie Dobson To Be Honoured At Mariposa Festival
The Toronto native wrote many songs over the years, but it is "Morning Dew" that has endured. She moved to the US in the '60s and then to the UK where she resides now. In July, she returns to Mariposa where her career had its start.

"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.
