Ten years after Kate Wolf's death, fans who still missed her organized the Kate Wolf Retrospective Concert, benefiting public radio and the Leukemia Foundation of America. The outdoor festival featured more than 15 acts and drew 1200 concertgoers. The success of the event spurred an annual Kate Wolf Memorial Music Festival – in 2011, the three-day lineup included luminaries like Taj Mahal, Bruce Cockburn and Los Lobos.
Each festival traditionally ends with the Kate Wolf song "Give Yourself to Love." For those who aren't familiar with Kate Wolf, we recommend this beautiful tune. Maybe once you listen, you'll be inspired to attend next year's festival.
