Kate and Anna McGarrigle were singers, musicians and songwriters with a well earned international reputation.
They have performed to critical and popular acclaim throughout North America, Europe and the Far East.
Their albums have earned 'record of the year status and awards' from the likes of Melody Maker, Stereo Review, the New York Times along with many others.
And songs they have composed have been widely recorded by other artists, including Maria Muldaur, Linda Ronstadt, Judy Collins, Emmylou Harris, Billy Bragg, and Nana Mouskouri.
Ever since I first heard them some thirty two years ago, I have been an unashamed fan, and I guess I can blame them in part, for my love of music sung in French.
This is a concert recorded live at Red Creek Cabaret, Rochester, NY, USA, in June 1984.
Both Linda Ronstadt, and Maria Muldaur guested on some of the songs.

This recording comes from a KCRW simulcast PBS special. There is a little 'tape hiss' however this is minor, and overall this is a very good quality recording.
