The concert and today’s (June 25th 2013) benefit screening at BAM will benefit the Kate McGarrigle Foundation, which “supports the rich artistic legacy of its namesake and the search for a cure for sarcoma.” The film features music from McGarrigle’s career performed by various artists Kate inspired and touched throughout her life as well as her children, friends, and family. Both the film and concert “supports the rich artistic legacy of its namesake and the search for a cure for sarcoma.”
Following the Screening i was able to shoot a bit of the Questions and Answers portion of the evening following a few words from Kate’s Kids and the rest of the cast. The panel included Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Emmylou Harris, Jane McGarrigle, Anna McGarrigle, Chaim Tannenbaum, Roma Bara. As a result i have prepared the video below to help support the effort and get the word out. Should you like what you see below please go and see it if the film is going to your town.
Sing Me The Songs “Kate’s Kids” Screening @ BAM Q&A With the cast.
Sing Me The Songs That Say I Love You: A Concert for Kate McGarrigle is an intimately shot musical and cinematic tribute to the great Canadian folk singer—followed by a Q&A with Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, and other cast members. In this hybrid documentary and concert film directed by Lian Lunson (Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man), candid interviews with McGarrigle’s family and friends are paired with rousing performances of her music by Rufus and Martha, Anna McGarrigle, Jimmy Fallon, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, and others to create a poignant, uplifting portrait of a legend.
A really nice surprise was being gifted not one but two presents for attending the screening. The book “One Day in the Life of Rufus Wainwright” by Tim Hailaind and the release of Sing Me The Songs (Nonesuch), a new double-CD tribute album… Very generous. Kate’s Kids have my gratitude for far more than two gifts, for they are gifts. Thank You.
