Tribute: Maggie Roche

Email a Friend

Maggie Roche was known especially with her sisters, Terre and Suzzy. She was the alto in the trio known as The Roches, and released more than a dozen records either with the Roches, or in duos with her sisters, building a big fan base in the process. They had started out singing in Roman Catholic church choirs. She and Terre formed a duo first, and got a break when Paul Simon had them sing backup on his 1973 album, “There Goes Rhymin’ Simon.” You can hear her perform with Suzzy on our show, from their recording, “Zero Church” back in April of 2002. She just died at the age of 65 from breast cancer.
