Mark Ross Obit: Maggie Roche (Roche Sisters) (1951-2017) (10) RE: Obit: Maggie Roche (of the Roche Sisters) 22 Jan 17


I knew Maggie and her sister Terre back in the day, we had the same manager Terri Thal, who was married at the time to Dave Van Ronk. Terri Thal had me go out to Jersey where the Roches lived to teach Maggie how to flatpick (she would have asked Van Ronk but he was a finger picker).
A lovely person was Maggie, and her duets with her sister were angelic.
I remember them showing up at The Kettle of Fish around the holidays to serenade the assembled habitues (and sons of habitues) with Christmas Carols and a stellar, stunning version of Handels HALLELUJAH Chorus.
