It has been announced on the radio this morning that Kate McGarrigle has died. She had been suffering from cancer for quite some time.

RIP Kate and thank you for the beautiful music.

This is a bit of a shock and very sad - I was only watching Kate & Anna's Christmas show video a couple of days ago - and drooling over that lovely song and solo performance by Kate. Kate and Anna McGarrigle have been my personal favourite recording artistes for 30-odd years, their's is the music I play most consistently and can't see that ever changing while I breathe. Heavenly and totally unique.

I never met them or saw them 'live' to my dismay and regret and now I never will.

RIP Kate and sincere condolenses to Anna and all family.

My condolences too.

I saw Kate and Anne perform at Sidmouth years ago, but my fondest memory is the beer tent at the Berkshire Midsummer Festival in around 1979 with the late Johnny Collins and Jim Mageean (with Mick Tems and Pat Smythe and many more) bellowing out the choruses to Heart Like a Wheel and the Work Song. I still perform 'Fishing' when in the mood.

I first saw the McGarrigles as one of 90 or 100 people jammed into the Golem Coffee House in Montreal in the mid 1970s. They were wonderful. I've loved them and their music ever since. So sad.

I agree, JohnB. That heavenly choir gets more awesome all the time, but it really does seem to be growing too fast for us on this side of Jordan.

Kate is the McGarrigle who, with Loudon Wainwright II, spawned the wonderful Loudon Wainwright III, too.   The McGarrigles & Wainwrights have given us a lot of great music. My condolences to all Kate's family and friends.

Now, I am listening to the youtube links and wish I'd known more, before. Thanks for the links and John, thanks for those pictures. Beautiful.

"Kate is the McGarrigle who, with Loudon Wainwright II, spawned the wonderful Loudon Wainwright III, too."

Just to correct the above - Kate was in fact married to Loudon Wainwright III, and she and Loudon were the parents of Rufus Wainwright and MArtha Wainwright, both fine performers.

Such a sad loss.

Terrible news.

Kate and Anna....The McGarrigles...will never be replaced, their harmonies were so beautiful that they were almost beyond music, they had a magical quality, breathtakingly beautiful.

The whole family seems to live and breath music, to such an extent that watching them "perform" could be a roller coaster experience....manic joy to the deepest of despair and back again, all in the space of an hour!

Their 1975 LP, "Kate and Anna McGarrigle", I rate in the top 5 all time great folk albums.

Sad news in a time of too much sad news.

I loved Kate and Anna’s music since first hearing Anna’s ‘Kitty Come Home.’ It seems to be a-musical-in-a-song where the kitty purrs and birds tweet and somebody's missing somebody.
Kitty Come Home

Both sisters wrote honest, touching, beautiful, intelligent songs.   Has anyone written a finer song about feeling old and alone in our world then Kate’s ‘I Eat Dinner’?
I Eat Dinner
Lyrics

And who would have thought that leaving NY state could be such a sad experience?
Mendocino

Who but Kate and Anna would ask us about the Bronte Sisters, ‘What did they know - what could they know about love - or anyone know about love?’
Love Over and Over

Today I discover another Kate and Anna treasure that I never knew existed.
Kate & Anna McGarrigle - Deaf to Your Call
(If anyone has the lyrics, please PM me.)

Thank you for the beautiful words and music over many years, Kate. So sad. I miss you though we’ve never met.

Thank you and Anna and all your musical friends and family.

So so sad.
I posted earlier today at around the same time as DerbyRam, and using an uncanny number of the same words. Well I'm sure I did, but the post got lost somewhere. Perhaps it was the shock that did it.

That enchanting, eponymous LP the sisters made in the mid-70s (their first) was one of THOSE records - and one that restored my faith in music at a stroke at a serious low point. I'm so glad I saw Kate & Anna live shortly after, at a gig where the heaviest of metal men were seen weeping into their beers.
And that little ol' LP will always remain a desert-island disc for me.

RIP Kate, and say hi to Theresa - you'll get along just fine!...
And condolences to all the clan.

This is very sad news.

I remember a weekend, many years ago, when I had a surprise solo appearance at Caffe Lena as my singing partner was having his appendix out. Lena enrolled Kate and Anna, who were living in Saratoga at the time, as an opening act for me. Very memorable, for me at least.

I had no idea she was fighting cancer. I am stunned.

She was the best. When Utah Phillips first saw her at the Caffe performing with the Penny Lang band he told Lena that she was the golden bracelet the other jewels hung from....

She was wonderful with Anna, but I'll never forget her duets with Roma Baran on guitar playing the blues. She was so precise and professional on stage. One of the best ever. I'm just stunned.

Norman D, thanks for correcting my wee-hours-of-the-morning mis-post.   

Yes, it's Rufus (Wainwright) who is Kate's (and Loudon III's) son.   I couldn't think of his first name at the moment, so I googled "Kate McGarrigle" and "Loudon Wainwright" and found a blurb that gave me this: "Kate is the McGarrigle who, with Loudon Wainwright II, spawned the wonderful Loudon Wainwright III, too."

This morning I realized my mistake and was about to post the correction.   You beat me to it. Thanks.

Their albums are still among my most frequently played. I'm glad I got to see them at Hugh's Room in early 2008. For me, this feels like a golden era is ending.

Like many other fans of the folk music scene in Montreal in the 60s, I was first introduced to Kate and Anna McGarrigle as part of the Mountain City Four. By the time they hit the "big stage" in the mid-70s, I had left Montreal but I was fortunate over the intervening years to catch them a number of times both north and south of the border.

Liam Clancy, Mary Travers, and now Kate McGarrigle. Yes, the heavenly coffee house has been enriched threefold but we are poorer here.

I'm going to go pour myself a single malt scotch now and listen to "Talk to Me of Mendocino" a couple of hundred times.

Rest in Peace, Kate, and thank you.

Kate McGarrigle, Canadian Singer and Songwriter, Dies at 63

By BEN SISARIO
New York Times, January 20, 2010

Kate McGarrigle, a Canadian singer who, with her sister Anna, captivated critics and fellow musicians with warm harmonies and a style that drew on both folk traditions and the personalized approach of 1970s singer-songwriters, died on Monday at her home in Montreal. She was 63.

The cause was clear-cell sarcoma, a form of cancer, said Barry Taylor, the manager for Ms. McGarrigle's son, the singer Rufus Wainwright.

Born in Montreal and raised in St.-Sauveur-des-Monts, a small town about 50 miles north, Ms. McGarrigle absorbed a range of musical traditions around a musical hearth. Her father, Frank, was of Irish-Canadian stock and steeped in Stephen Foster and turn-of-the-century parlor songs; from her mother, Gaby, she and her two elder sisters — the oldest McGarrigle sister, Jane, was a church organist — learned old songs in French.

"Music was always there at home," Kate McGarrigle said in a 1997 interview in Sing Out! magazine. "At parties, somebody would get up and sing, and my father would accompany them and sing the harmony. There were lots of friends and uncles and each would get up and give their big song."

In the 1960s Kate, Anna and two boyfriends formed the Mountain City Four, which became one of Montreal's leading folk groups. Kate — 14 months younger than Anna — also studied engineering and science at McGill University, and in 1970 she moved to New York City for a career as a musician. In 1974 Warner Brothers signed Kate and Anna to a recording contract. Their first album, "Kate and Anna McGarrigle," was released in 1976.

Critics were immediately smitten. "Their voices have a plaintive allure full of light vibrato and husky emotionalism, and they blend together exquisitely in harmonies," John Rockwell wrote in The New York Times. Rolling Stone's review declared, "Not since Carole King's 'Tapestry' has the female voice been recorded with such unblemished intimacy."

But with Kate pregnant, the McGarrigles did not tour for more than a year after the album was released, and however many accolades they received from critics, their songs did not fit radio playlists. They released 10 albums, most recently "The McGarrigle Christmas Hour" (Nonesuch) in 2005, but their biggest commercial success came when other singers recorded their songs, most notably Linda Ronstadt (Anna's "Heart Like a Wheel") and Maria Muldaur (Kate's "Work Song").

Love and family life were central themes in both women's music, and their songs often addressed romance's place in the quotidian details of life. Kate McGarrigle's 1990 song "I Eat Dinner" contemplates love lost among the leftovers, and both sisters' "Matapedia," from 1996, is based on a real event in Kate's life, when an old flame saw her 17-year-old daughter, Martha, and mistook her for her mother.

Martha, like Rufus, has become a noted singer and songwriter. Their father is the singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III, who was married to Ms. McGarrigle in the 1970s. That marriage ended in divorce. Both children survive her, as do her two sisters and a grandson.

The McGarrigle sisters rarely toured, but when they performed it often became a family affair, with musical friends and relatives sitting in. Their 1998 album "The McGarrigle Hour" (Hannibal) was based around this model, with Ms. Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Martha, Rufus and Loudon Wainwright. For a number of years the McGarrigle sisters performed a Christmastime show at Carnegie Hall, and Kate's final concert was another family Christmas show, at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Dec. 9.

"They were brought up in a very close-knit and somewhat old-fashioned way," Rufus Wainwright said of his mother and aunt in a telephone interview on Tuesday, "a nice 'Waltons' way, and so they could never be too far away from each other."

drenched in music making such as Kate and Anna MeGarrigle
playing at Ben Applebaum's Tatoo Bar and Grill
singing the soundtrack to John Weldon's animated
film ~ LOG DRIVERS WALTZ ~ singing LIVE....no easy task...
crazy times, fun~filled, wildly imaginative and creative

their uniqueness the haunting beauy of their voices
harmonizing, melding with lovely sometimes lonely lyrics
the likes of which singsong memorable stories able to inflate
hearts, able to break hearts, able to bring hearts together, able to REACH heights of soaring joy, or break down into childish fits of whimsy ~ sheer delight, able to riddle brainwaves into dark and rich corners of provocative contemplation, able to infuse bones and bloodstreams with their sound waves causing gyrations of movement, swirled now into the depths of grief, my face, my cheeks stretched to the limit from EAR to EAR by these musical songstress's lyrical abilities able to ENRICH in ways the musical likes of which have yet to be equaled....makes me shake my head makes me stomp my feet and wiggle my hips and wig to the upbeat tempo of Kate and Anna MeGarrigle's music, makes me rail at death, makes me say over and over again, no way, Kate can't be gone....her music, their music, lives on.....

I happen to be in Tanzania at the moment, where Kate's passing, naturally. has not made the news. The Internet is sooooo slow here, that I discourage emails from home...but, about Kate, I've received quite a few.
I realized that I all of her early recorded work on vinyl and all of her recent work on CD...but nothing in the middle. So I sat down and picked up everything on ITunes that I didn't have. I've been listening to nothing else since then, with frequent tears in my eyes.
I've seen the McGarrigles many, many times...and their concerts certainly rate among the most memorable in my lifetime. I know a lot of people who knew Kate directly, though I never actually met her face to face. Even so, being one step removed, and having seen her from the first row at so many concerts, my sense of loss is quite profound. I'm gonna learn one of her songs and give it a permanent place in my repertoire for sure.

One half of the most beautiful and uncannily clever duet ever—as the saying goes, they could sing the telephone book. And "French Record" is so good it is difficult to believe it ever could have been made.

Kate, I last heard you and Anna sing one night outdoors in Lowell MA a few years back. "Alice Blue Gown," and more ... I think the magical beauty of the music still clings to the trees there.

I will miss you, everyone will. Amba Lee and I send our condolences to Anna and to your families.

Heart Like A Wheel was always one of my favourite songs; I first heard Linda Ronstadt's interpretation on the album of the same name, and I had to find out about Kate and Anna - where they came from, how many albums they had recorded, every little detail. Heart Like A Wheel was Anna's song, but Kate contributed to the performance perfectly. I still perform that delicate, bleakly beautiful piece - Roy Harris does too. Thank you, Kate and Anna, for giving your unique music to me.

I attended the funeral and the music, from the Quebec song sung by a couple whose names I didn't catch at the beginning, to the rousing version of Travelling On For Jesus by Chaim Tannenbaum and ensemble at the end was truly amazing.

The songs of Kate's, Talk To Me Of Mendocino, sung by Emmylou Harris and Prosperina, sung by Martha Wainwright, were sad and beautiful; enough to break anyone's heart.

John, or anyone, do you know the name of the song sung by a woman near the beginning? Someone said she was a sister of Loudon Wainwright III. Another sister of Loudon's spoke just before this song was sung.

And do you know the name of the song sung by Rufus Wainwright?
