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.

How sad. I didn't know much about their music, but my friend who passed on last year was a friend of her son, Loudon, and raised the roof in praise of him and his music, as well as his family.

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.

My condolences to her family and friends.

"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.
