Kate McGarrigle * obit in Time by Rufus

Posted December 21st, 2010 by Anna

A lovely tribute from Rufus to Kate in Time Magazine. It is a hard time of year. She held on through last Christmas, leaving her bed temporarily to great old friends, Michèle Forest, Jack Nissenson and Peter Weldon, all of whom we sang with in the Montreal coffee-houses of the 1960s. We sat around the fireplace in St Sauveur and sang a couple of the old songs. It think it was during Shenandoah that Kate looked at Jack and said, ‘you’re making me cry.’ She wasn’t the only one.

    What a beautiful piece, I wish I was as articulate. I am sure Kate and the family are in all our thoughts at the moment.

    I am very familiar with your mother and her work and had the pleasure of meeting her a couple of times .her music touched places in my heart that i didn’t know were there or i thought i was too tough to admit were there. i will never forget her.
