Who is Bonnie Dobson?

Bonnie Dobson is a Canadian folk music songwriter, singer, and guitarist, most known in the 1960s for composing the songs "I'm Your Woman" and "Morning Dew". The latter, augmented by Tim Rose, became a melancholy folk rock standard, covered by Fred Neil, Lulu, Nazareth, the Grateful Dead, the Jeff Beck Group, Robert Plant, the Pozo Seco Singers, The 31st of February, Long John Baldry and Einst├╝rzende Neubauten, among many others.

Dobson has consistently questioned Rose's right to a co-writing credit for "Morning Dew", but due to a loophole in US copyright law, Rose was successful in his claim for royalties.
