Reel Music 31 – SING ME THE SONGS THAT SAY I LOVE YOU: A CONCERT FOR KATE MCGARRIGLE

Sing Me the Songs

In this hybrid documentary and concert film tribute to the great Canadian folk singer (1946-2010), candid interviews with McGarrigle’s family and friends are paired with rousing performances of her music by Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Anna McGarrigle, Jimmy Fallon, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, and others to create a poignant, uplifting portrait of a legend. Lian Lunson, director of LEONARD COHEN: I’M YOUR MAN, assembles home movie footage of the Wainwrights (their father is Loudon Wainwright III), archival footage, and family interviews that give resonance to the story of Kate’s life and the songs she wrote, all of which draw upon romantic, carefree, and bittersweet memories referencing her life as an artist, wife, sister, and mother. (107 mins.)

 

SING ME THE SONGS THAT SAY I LOVE YOU: A CONCERT FOR KATE MCGARRIGLE screens Tuesday, October 15 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our Reel Music 31 Festival.
