Throughout the day on Tuesday, I kept hearing about the passing of Kate McGarrigle. She was a Canadian folk-music legend, so obviously I felt bad for never having heard of her. I soon found out that she was also the mother of the famed Rufus and Martha Wainwright.
After doing some research, turns out that, even if you are like me and haven’t heard the name Kate McGarrigle, you have definitely heard her voice.
Watch this video and feel countless childhood memories come rushing back.
For me, this makes her an iconic Canadian.
