Kate McGarrigle Dies

Kate McGarrigle passed away this past Monday night from a type of cancer called clear cell sarcoma. She was 63. McGarrigle is the mother of Martha and Rufus Wainwright. She and her sister, Anna, were a formidable folk duo from Canada. I will always remember seeing Kate and Rufus show up as a surprise at a Martha Wainwright show in New York in the summer of 2008. The above video is of this incredibly talented musical family performing"Don't Forget" at that show.
