Kate & Anna McGarrigle: Dancer With Bruises

Bob Woffinden, New Musical Express, 9 April 1977

THERE ARE three sisters altogether. Jane, the eldest, who sometimes plays organ on her sisters' records, lives a happily married life in California, and the other two are Anna and Kate – to place them according to age, though Kate is the more self-assertive of the two and usually adopts the manner of a senior partner. Anna is demure and reserved, and says little from beneath a heavy fringe; however her comments, though rarer than Kate's, are probably more carefully chosen.
