Legendary Canadian folk music icon Kate McGarrigle, sister to Anna, mother to Rufus and Martha Wainwright, ex-wife of Loudon Wainwright, died of cancer Monday evening at the age of 63.
From theMcGarrigle Sisters website:
“Sadly our sweet Kate had to leave us last night. She departed in a haze of song and love surrounded by family and good
friends. She is irreplaceable and we are broken-hearted. Til we meet
again dear sister.”
What awonderful musician she was, and what a life well-lived she had, full of beautiful music.
