Still thinking about Kate; the outrageous sarcasm, the wild non-sequiturs, the outspoken wit and the uninhibited behaviour. She would have had hundreds of friends and admirers even if she had never sung a note.

And now worrying about those closest to her, trying to extrapolate from my own grief to theirs, and falling short.

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?

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.

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.

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.

singing the soundtrack to John Weldon's animated

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.....

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."

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.

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.
