When Lucy supported Rufus on some California dates in May 2009, Loudon — who now lives in Los Angeles with Martha Wainwright. Pho- his wife Ritamarie and their 16-year-old daughter Alexandra — got tograph by Mark Squiares. up onstage to run through his own “Needless To Say” and the cowboy song “Old Paint” with them one night. K. together. “When you’re singing with a group, the most important thing is the sound of the group, rather than one individual in it,” says Martha. “Hopefully, I have learned to really strive for that sound that happens when the harmonics and vibrations are just right.

That predilection for Old World-style carols informs The McGarrigle Christmas Hour, too; the stately “Il Est Ne Le Divin Enfant” and the hymnlike “Seven Joys Of Mary” are hardly staples of quickie Christmas cash-in albums. On those occasions when they left Montreal and visited their father in New York during the holidays, young Rufus and Martha also got to sing with the Roches, both at the Bottom Line and on the city streets. “I remember once a 6-year-old Martha sang with us and charmed the crowd, without knowing one word of any Christmas carol,” recalls Suzzy.

Kate fell ill, which nixed most of the gigs. But not all of them. In New York, Rufus and Martha served as hosts; out west, Loudon and the Roches covered the Los Angeles date. In December 2009, members of the family are bringing “A Not So Silent Night” to London’s Royal Albert Hall. But regardless of the venue or seating capacity, Martha says the spirit of their ongoing Christmas productions is still very much rooted in the home-and-hearth tradition of those Canadian family celebrations past. “We do all the planning ourselves,” Martha says.
