Kate McGarrigle RIP

I was sorry to hear that Kate McGarrigle, sister of Anna, wife of Loudon Wainwright and mother of Martha and Rufus, passed away at the age of only 63 yesterday.  The family’s Christmas Hour album is a festive cracker and she and her sister brought respectability and beauty to folk music for a very wide audience.

One thought on “Kate McGarrigle RIP

  1. I hadn’t heard – been a fan since the first album with heart like a wheel on it. They were great because they’re roots covered French canadian folk as well as country. The sisters tripleting? with emmylou harris on emmylou’s All I Intended To Be album was a recent highlight. sad news indeed, a real loss.


Come on folks. Don't just sit there gawping. Say something. Get involved.
