Well, sort of. What we've enabled you to do is experience Love Over and Over.
No, this is not the start to a bad romance fiction novelette. It's the concert that took place just a couple of weeks ago, as part of Toronto's Luminato Festival, in celebration of the life and art of Kate McGarrigle.
Kate and her sister Anna formed the popular folk duo known as the McGarrigle Sisters. They are considered to be pioneers in the world of Canadian folk music. They received SOCAN Lifetime Achievement Awards, and Kate was inducted into the Order Of Canada in 1993.
Kate McGarrigle died in January of 2010, and while her loss was felt right across the folk music world, none felt it quite so acutely as her musical progeny: Rufus and Martha Wainwright, both incredibly popular artists themselves.
Rufus and Martha form the core of this tribute concert, but they're flanked by their aunt Anna, as well as a who's-who of North American folk music. Throughout this concert, you'll hear the likes of Emmylou Harris, Bruce Cockburn and Jane Siberry, as well as the Wainwrights, deliver touching renditions of Kate's songs.
You'll also get what you couldn't have had at the concert itself: a backstage pass. Several of the concert's participants shared with us some of their fondest memories of Kate, and talked about the personal significance of the songs they sang.
You can listen to the concert on Concerts on Demand, but to get the full effect, tune in to Canada Live on Thursday June 28 and Friday June 29.
Here's a sample, "(Talk To Me Of) Mendocino" from Love Over and Over.
