shock and sympathy

Today I discovered that Kate McGarrigle passed away this weekend. I am utterly saddened by this news, and just wanted to say that my heart is aching for Rufus and Martha and co. A few years ago (actually, it was 2005; it's quite terrifying to realise this happened five years ago), I watched Rufus, Martha and Kate perform together for an evening. Even my mum, who is not a huge fan of Rufus, conceded that the night was pretty magical. It was an honour to watch such a musically blessed family perform together.

I'm sure people of the folk world, plus many many more, are reeling from this loss. R.I.P. Kate McGarrigle. My condolences to the family.
