The Rankin Family

Sad morning in Canadian country/folk music as word spreads that Raylene Rankin of The Rankin Family has died of cancer at 52 . She passed away in hospital in Halifax.

Last Summer, April and I went to the Red Shoe Pub, the Rankins’ cafe in Cape Breton, in hopes that we’d catch one of the famous singers. We didn’t, but enjoyed the experience anyway.

  1. It didn’t seem that long ago that I heard her interviewed on CBC. This was a second bout of cancer for her and it’s heartbreaking to here that she didn’t survive. My condolences to her family, friends and fans.
