KATE MCGARRIGLE 1946-2010 RIP
And it's only love and it's only love
That can wreck a human being and turn him inside out
i imagine anyone who plays music has always been a little envious of the mcgarrigle clan: the two sisters, loudon wainwright, rufus & martha & almost every canadian songwriter/singer alive in the late 20th century & onwards into this new one. that's a lot of talent all hanging out together singing & writing, fucking & fighting.
i do have to say that i never cared for the mcgarrigle sisters as performers. a little too folky for me, their brittle voices never resonated. they wrote good songs though & grew into their matriarchal roles as time went on.
enjoy this group session.
