RIP Kate McGarrigle

Condolences to Rufus and Martha Wainwright on the loss of their mother, who succumbed to cancer today at the age of 63. McGarrigle had a long and terrific folk career, performing with her sister Anna throughout the '60s and '70s, and in recent years joining Rufus and Martha on stage (including a concert six weeks ago in London that raised $55,000 for sarcoma research).
