Town Hall in New York City will host a two-night celebration to the music of the late-Kate McGarrigle on May 12 and 13.
The tribute will be hosted by Joe Boyd and will include performances and remembrances by her son and daughter, Martha and Rufus Wainwright, Kate’s sister, Anna McGarrigle, Jimmy Fallon, Emmylou Harris, Antony (of Antony and the Johnsons), Krystle Warren, Teddy Thompson, Justin Bond, and more.
The performers will be accompanied by a band very familiar with Kate’s catalog, including Thomas Bartlett on piano, Jane McGarrigle on piano, Calum MacColl on guitar, Anna McGarrigle on piano and accordion, Brad Albetta on bass, Bryan Devendorf on drums, Michel Pepin on guitar, Chaim Tannenbaum on mandolin and banjo and Joel Zifkin on violin (the last three regular members of Kate & Anna’s touring group).
Also, as part of the remembrance of Kate, Nonesuch Records will be releasing new editions of Kate & Anna's first two albums.
Kate McGarrigle was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 and passed away in 2010 at the age of 63.
