Special--Remembering Kate McGarrigle
This week Laurie feaures a special remembering the late Kate McGarrigle. McGarrigle--best known for her recordings with sister Anna and a folk music career that spanned four decades from the early '70's--passed away Monday at 63.
Music was a constant element in McGarrigle's life, from the family get-togethers of her childhood on down to her own children, the musicians Rufus and Martha Wainwright. She earned critical acclaim throughout her life for both her lovely voice and her songwriting: the sisters' songs were also covered by other big names like Linda Ronstadt and Maria Muldaur.
