    Canadian folksinger Kate McGarrigle dies at 63

    TORONTO (AP) -- Canadian folk singer and songwriter Kate McGarrigle, best known for performing with her sister Anna, has died of cancer. She was 63.

    McGarrigle's brother-in-law, Dane Lanken, said the singer died at her Montreal home Monday night surrounded by her sisters, Jane and Anna, and her children, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, also singers.

    He said McGarrigle had been battling cancer since the summer of 2006. He said the cancer started in her small intestine and spread to her liver.

    Kate and Anna, known as the McGarrigle Sisters, began their careers performing at Montreal coffeehouses in the 1960s with a group called the Mountain City Four. They got their break in the 1970s, when their songs were covered by numerous artists, including Linda Ronstadt, who used "Heart Like a Wheel" as the title song to one of her albums.

Canadians will best know her and her sister as the singers of "The Log Driver's Waltz" (nfb.ca).

I was kinda familiar with Kate and Anna McGarrigle, but had no idea they did that song. Or that she was Rufus and Martha Wainwright's mother. Talented family.
