Saturday Emmylou Blogging

Published on Aug 26, 2015
Unearthed from the 2010 Meltdown's Kate McGarrigle Celebration tapes comes this rare fusion of rehearsal and performance. It's jagged and intimate and shamelessly emotive rendering that I feel captures the complex moment where Kate's family and friends via commemorating her artistic and human gifts shared their love and found solace. It's culled from a rediscovered one-camera rough cut that I shot and edited in 2010 and thought was lost. Until tonight...

Thanks to Sam Epstein.
