Luminato festival pays tribute to Kate McGarrigle

Rufus Wainwright among performers

There won’t be many dry eyes June 15 at Massey Hall during Love Over and Over, a concert tribute to the late Kate McGarrigle. Among the performers scheduled for the Luminato event are Emmylou Harris, Kevin Drew, Amy Millan, Kate’s sisters Anna and Jane, and her children, Rufus and Martha Wainwright.
“My mom, Kate McGarrigle, who was an incredible songwriter . . . was really into the reality of being an artist and being a musician,” says Rufus Wainwright. 

“It’s a lot of hard work and it’s a lot of fun as long as you put in the effort. And she really made both Martha and I do that over the years and . . . propelled me onto several incredible stages.”

Luminato runs till Sunday, June 17. For more on Luminato and the Love Over and Over tribute, click here
