      Rufus and Martha Wainwright: Christmas 101

      The Wainwright- McGarrigle extended family of musicians are legendary contributors to the music scene across generations and national borders. The family's Holiday concert tradition, initiated by the late Kate McGarrigle and now spearheaded by indie-music sensations Martha and Rufus Wainwright, is hitting the shores of California for a not-to-be-missed Christmas concert bonanza starting in San Francisco and culminating in two concerts at UCLA's Royce Hall.�
      This enduring McGarrigle-Wainwright Christmas show tradition began when the siblings were teenagers and has continued over the years, morphing into annual all-star evenings of nostalgia, humor and inspired musical performances, with proceeds going to the Kate McGarrigle Fund, created by Kate before her death in 2009 to raise money for underfunded sarcoma research.�
      Kate's final live performance was the 2009 Christmas show, surrounded by family and friends on stage in a magical, emotional night in London at the Royal Albert Hall. Undaunted by protests that she was too ill, she persevered as only Kate could and brought the family together for one more Christmas concert. Now, Kate's children, grandchildren, sisters, nieces and nephews and her legions of friends carry on the tradition in honor of her legacy, her music, her passion for life and her fight against cancer.�
      Two fabulous, lively evenings in Royce Hall will feature a bevy of to-be-announced special guests performing alongside Rufus, Martha and the McGarrigle-Wainwright clan, which will include Kate's beloved extended family gathering from Montreal, New York and California.�
      Join these enormously generous performers for a not-so-silent night that honors the things that matter most at Christmastime-with plenty of holiday spice added for good measure.�
      A special charity event benefitting the Kate McGarrigle Fund will be held Friday December 21 at Royce Hall. For more details and to donate, please visit�
