In 2010, folk singer-songwriter Kate McGarrigle passed away from clear-cell sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. Her children, singer-songwriters Rufus and Martha Wainwright, have held various events to keep their mother’s name alive and raise awareness about sarcoma. Last week, they released Sing Me the Songs, a double-disc CD containing highlights from their tribute concerts to her, and tonight, they’re holding another one, under the name Kate’s Kids, to raise money for the Kate McGarrigle Foundation, which aides sarcoma research. Joining the Wainwrights at the show will be a star-studded list of their friends, including Norah Jones, Emmylou Harris, Mark Ronson, and Kate’s sister Jane, among others.
