Singer Kate McGarrigle, best known for her folky collaborations with sister Anna, and mother of singers Rufus and Martha Wainwright, died today of cancer in her native Montreal at age 63. The sisters sang in both English and French, and, “in terms of folk music internationally, she was an icon,” the Gazette's music critic says of Kate. A longtime colleague called her “one of Canada’s greatest singers.”
