Anonny Mouse Rufus Wainwright and the McGarrigles (8) RE: Rufus Wainwright and the McGarrigles 09 Mar 06

As mentioned in a much more recent post, this household is, thanks to el-spouso-into the ENTIRE Wainwright/McGarrigle family--Kate, Anna, Loudon, Martha and ESPECIALLY Rufus!

Sadly, we have missed in-concert duos with Rufus and Martha, but have seen Rufus several times-most recently a summer ago in concert with Ben Folds, and Guster in Pittsburgh. Rufus came on last--and it had already been 3 almost solid hours of music when he ended. The audience would've stayed another hour. Also, to his credit (IMHO) he was the ONLY one of the performers that evening to come out from where all the buses and limos were parked, meet and greet the fans, take pix with them, and sign autographs. My wife (who is no spring chicken--nor am I) was simply awed. It's tough living with an aged "teeny bopper," eh? Anyway, through her we are probably the penultimate "data base" for virtually anything related to the Wainwright family, or parents, sister, cousins. Sheesh. I must confess, having always been "into" music and artists, and my wife often looking at me like an alien, it has been a simply LIBERATING experience watching her become a real FAN of someone so talented...and from such a wondrous musical family heritage!
