Eclectic Tastes


Kate and Anna McGarrigle are two sisters from Quebec who were part of
the music hierarchy/royalty here in Canada since the 70's.
Kate's son is Rufus Wainwright and he and his sister, Martha,
continue the family tradition today each in their own musical way.

This is one of those songs that may turn into an 'ear worm' for you.

Have a wonderful Sunday every one.

  1. it's nice to learn about your artists. I bet you have more snow than I do now because the sun came out around noon and most of the snow melted. But another storm is on its way, so there will be more. I may be stuck here for a while. Best to Sophie and Ron.

    1. Oh I don't know about that, Inger. We still don't have any but a little left over here and there among bushes. Think of all the water this snow is providing your land.....
      Best regards.

  2. I was listening to CBC One on the radio today -- that program about books -- and apparently Anna McGarrigle has written a book about her mother, who had many issues but was the source, apparently, of the family's musical genes. Martha Wainwright read an excerpt from the book.

  3. I left Canada in 1973. That must be why I've never heard of Kate and Anna. Thanks for introducing me, Jim! Have a happy Sunday!

    1. What? This is paramount to being sacrilegious, Louise!! Kidding my dear!
      Hey, you were busy getting to know a new country and starting a new career.
      Have a good weekend.

    2. Louise while you leave Canada in 1973 ~ Jim and I meet in 1973!

      Kate and Anna are part of my soul and hope you can catch up with the music that didn't filter into your life so many decades ago. BTW, I am still trying to get my head around the fact that you are an American. I am still in Canadian mode. I suspect that won't ever change for yours truly.

      Cheers
      Ron

    3. I don't feel any dissonance over being an American, Ron. I'm still Canadian by birth and will always be Canadian in my heart. Well actually, I have two countries in my heart, because I love my adopted country too. My mother was born in the USA, an accident of hard times in Nova Scotia which sent my grandfather to Pennsylvania to work. While my Uncle John was born in Nova Scotia, both Mom and Aunt Louise were born in the US. They all returned to the Cove when my mother was seven. Oddly, she and her sister were always considered Yankees, even though their family had lived in the Cove and surrounding area for centuries!

      I will have to do some catching up with Kate and Anna! My perpetual state never changes, does it? LOL 1973 was a big year for both of us!!!! Take care, my friend!

  4. I've been listening to and loving Kate and Anna for decades. I've seen them on stage many times and was very saddened when Kate passed away. Good music, good memories. Move over, Moon!
