We learned this week that Kate McGarrigle passed away on Monday. I wanted to mark her passing and I'll start with a clip from the Winnipeg Folk Festival in 1992.
There are a number of performances of Talk to Me of Mendocino on YouTube. I think I found a good one that hasn't already been picked up this week but I could be wrong. The McGarrigles and their music have a lot of fans and if you frequent the blogosphere I'm sure this isn't the first you've seen of them in the past few days.
And to close, from just about a year ago here's a performance of Willie Moore by Kate, her son Rufus Wainwright and Elvis Costello. Costello isn't part of the family but they had to let him sit in -- it's his show. Have a good weekend.
