On June 25, 2013, Nonesuch Records released Sing Me the Songs: Celebrating the Works of Kate McGarrigle, which features highlights from the New York tribute concerts at The Town Hall as well as those held in London and Toronto after McGarrigle died of sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, in 2010.
Proceeds from the concerts provided seed money for the Kate McGarrigle Foundation—a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money in the fight against sarcoma and also to preserving her legacy through the arts. Net proceeds from the sale of the Sing Me the Songs album also will be donated to the Foundation. The double-disc set was produced by Joe Boyd, who curated the concerts, and features performances by Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Anna McGarrigle, Emmylou Harris, Antony, Norah Jones, and Teddy Thompson, among others.
To pick up a copy of the Sing Me the Songs album on CD, MP3, and FLAC, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout.
