Presentaton of Mountain City Girls
The family album of the McGarrigle sisters
By Anna and Jane McGarrigle
Anna and Jane’s family memoir was released in November 2015 to rave reviews and they’re following it up with personal appearances. Typically, they perform a song, take turns reading from the book, do a Q & A that is generally moderated by a media personality, and close with a song or two. They will happily sign books and chat informally with fans of the book and the family’s music.
“Be it family history, beautiful snapshots from the early lives of three remarkable women or significant slices of Canadian history from the last two centuries, this book stacks up to at least be a triple threat. Add music and humour, well, now that’s positively formidable. Thanks for keeping the bar raised, ladies.” Rufus Wainwright
“From the moment I met The Mountain City Girls, Kate, Anna and Jane, I wanted to be a part of that magical McGarrigle circle—the songs, the suppers, the families and fellow travellers, and they blessed me with it all. This book is a charming history, written with affection and wit by Anna and Jane, and now everyone can share in the story of their lives and lineage. It is a love story really, of a time, a place and a remarkable sisterhood that has given the world some of its most unique and stunningly beautiful music.” Emmylou Harris
