It doesn’t get more personal—or more beautiful—than the concert Rufus and Martha Wainwright organized to honor their mother, the great Canadian folksinger Kate McGarrigle, a year after her death. With Kate’s sisters Anna and Jane (with whom she wrote and recorded for years), her sister-in-law Sloan Wainwright, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, and others, the film features many of Kate’s own poignant songs.
Q&A Sloan Wainwright and WFUV’s John Platt w/ LIVE MUSIC performed by Sloan and guitarist Stephen Murphy from Sloan's latest recording, Upside Down & Under My Heart. Folk-pop artist Sloan Wainwright has “an earth mother voice that she pours into unexpectedly sensitive blends of folk, jazz, blues and funk” (New York Times). Her brother, Loudon Wainwright III was married to Kate McGarrigle.
