Rufus Wainwright spent two hours in the Basilica last June; the result is his “Mother” programme, specially designed for the Basilica and made up of pieces from his personal and family repertoire (Loudon Wainwright and Kate McGarrigle), covers (Mother – John Lennon, Dans les yeux de ma mère – Arno) and many more surprises…
Alongside his sister Martha, the amazing singer-songwriter who grew up in a family of musicians in Montréal undoubtedly offers one of the most moving concerts in this edition of the Festival.
