RIP Kate McGarrigle
I consider myself very fortunate to have seen the McGarrigles in concert - just the once - in the late 80's. A gentle performance of intimacy and simplicity. As is sometimes the way with these things, I probably didnt appreciate their performance at the time as much as I should have done. I grew to appreciate their fine music with time and I'm therefore very glad for my one chance to share in their musical company, whatever the circumstances.
The above is actually one of her sister Anna's songs, but it captures their essence (as I remember it) as a duo and as two voices blending into one sweet and timeless sound. Its also a very poignant song at this time which is so touching, I feel it is right to choose it. I'd also like to dedicate this song to RockingMitch and to wish him well once more from us all.
