IreQuote of the day / Kate McGarrigle

“When I was a little thing
Papa tried to make me sing
Home Sweet Home and Aura Lee
These were songs that my daddy tought me
Camptown Races and Susannah Don’t You Cry
Gentle Annie still brings a tear to my eye
Label it garbage, label it art
You couldn’t call it soul, you had to call it heart”

– Kate McGarrigle “Work Song”.

Ms. McGarrigle, whose Irish-Canadian father loved Stephen Foster songs, passed away Monday at age 63.
