The Loss of a Canadian Musical Icon ...

Kate McGarrigle (left) who along with her sister Anna formed the folk duet The McGarrigle Sisters and wrote and recorded numerous songs and ten albums has passed away at the age of 63 following a battle with cancer.

An amazing musician in her own right, Kate's children Rufus and Martha Wainwright have followed thier mom and aunt to become iconic musical artists in their own right.

Prayers for Ms. McGarrigle's family and all of her fans ... it's a sad day for the Canadian Musical scene ...
