Treasures Left Behind: Remembering Kate Wolf
A Tribute Album
Produced by Nina Gerber Released 1998
Red House Records
Before she died of leukemia in 1986 at the young age of 44, singer and songwriter Kate
Wolf had criss-crossed North America for fifteen years performing some of the most
remarkable songs of the era. With roots in the golden hills, valleys and
seashores of Northern California, her songs are still vibrant and healing...simple yet
profound. On this new recording, fourteen artists and admirers pay tribute to Kate
and her music.
Emmylou Harris' rendition of Kate
Wolf's Love Still Remains, on the Kate Wolf tribute album Treasures Left
Behind: Remembering Kate Wolf, received a
1999 Grammy Nomination
for Female Country Vocal Performance.
|Here's what the fans have to say!
"Contemporary folk can hardly
get better than Emmy Lou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Dave Alvin, John Gorka, Nanci Griffith,
Greg Brown & Ferron, and others singing the songs of the late Kate Wolf."
San Francisco Chronicle
Dec. 24, 1998
