* * * RIP - Kate McGarrigle * * *

( New York, 1970)
Dig out "Kate & Anna McGarrigle"
Run for "french record"
Have dinner with "Dancer With Bruised Knees"
Sing along with "The McGarrigle Hour"
Take a long pause for a listen to all those songs
Kate & Anna made a big part of our lives!
Most of all, watch "Gentle Annie" now!

Thomas Cobb, author of 1987's CRAZY HEART, will be stopping by SMC at HIGH NOON to talk with Cousin Kate about his book, the new film starring Jeff Bridges, the music which influenced his book, and music from the new motion picture soundtrack being released on New West Records 1/19.

I'll be giving away movie passes to see Crazy Heart at the Kendall Square Cinema and copies of the new Crazy Heart CD, too!

For a primer, take a look at what the L.A. Times & Boston Globe are saying about the movie and what James Reed has to say about the soundtrack.

Tune in EARLY, you don't want to miss this rare opportunity to hear a first-hand account of Crazy Heart's inspiration, publication, and ultimate big screen release!
