Across the Great Divide (Kate Wolf)

  1. Across the Great Divide (Kate Wolf) – This song is more about time than space but in the quantum perspective the two are vectors of a continuum. Kate was a gifted, sensitive and prolific (200+) songwriter from California who understood and embodied the Yin of the North American Spirit in balance, as Stan Rogers’ personified the Yang with a developed Yin strain. Like Rogers, she was with us for a relatively short time and died of leukemia at 44, three years after Stan’s death in an aircraft fire. She played at festivals in Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver in the last years of her life, and she overlapped with Stan in Calgary for the last year of his. Musically these two artists showed some of the best of the Canada-US cross-border flow.
