line pic Band: Jane (banjo, piano, vocals), Pat Donaldson (bass), Andrew Cowan (melodica, guitar), Jean-Paul Robichaud (drums), Gilles Losier (violin), Ken Pearson (organ).
line pic The above set was broadcast on Canadian FM radio and some of the above were broadcast on Canadian TV in an episode of the series En Scene. Video of four songs (Excursion a Venise, You Tell Me That I'm Falling Down, Cheminant a la ville and La belle s'est etourdie) were incuded as a bonus on The McGarrigle Hour DVD. The show does not appear in Dane Lanken's list for 1981. La Presse, which usually carried ads for McGarrigles concerts, has no evidence in any 1981 issues. It is perplexing as this appears to be a unique band line-up which could not have been accidentally transposed from a different date. However a number of performances at the Expo Theatre during the Montreal Jazz Festival in July 1981 were recorded by the same production company and also featured in episodes of En Scene, which suggests 1981 is reasonable.

1981.07.05
Cité-du-Havre
Montréal, QC
Listed by Dane Lanken as "some event at Cité-du-Havre" - coincidentally where the Expo Theatre is situated. Could this actually be the date of the show there that is attributed to April 1981? It may actually have no relevance as a performance. There are no details in La Presse for any McGarrigles shows at the Expo Theatre during 1981.

Supported by Connie Kaldor who recalls: "That tour had a terrible sound man that at the Winnipeg show turned up with the gear five minutes before the show began. There was a suggestion by Kate to do the show acoustically and just ask the audience up on stage. Sadly the band would not go for it. I was voting for Kate's plan because the greatest magic of those shows was when most or all of the band disappeared and we were left with the pure sounds of great songs well sung."

Interview (with Pete Fornatale?) and perform On My Way to Town / Complainte pour Ste-Catherine / Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life. From the New York Times: "One memorable ''Mixed Bag'' show was with Kate and Anna McGarrigle, the sisters from Québec, whose enthusiasts consider them the best thing since maple syrup poured on fresh snow. As the sisters were approaching the studio, Mr. Fornatale recalls, ''They saw an old man hit by a taxi, which sped away. They would not leave the scene until an ambulance arrived, and they were pretty shaken up when they came into the studio.'' But Mr. Fornatale's patient microphone manner induced some lovely songs in French and English from the McGarrigles, who were not household names in the 60's, but are linked to that tradition."
