Raylene Rankin – Passes at 52


Awwwww …. this sucks. I’ve been a fan of the Rankin Family for years, and I saw them live here in Ottawa back in 2007 when they reunited for one last tour. They kind of define the east coast of Canada for me (although there are others, including Rita McNeil and the Men of the Deeps) …

Being a sucker for harmonies, they really do it for me. This is a profoundly sad day .. Raylene was far to young to go, yet she fought an almost constant battle with her health for a decade, so may she rest in peace.
