Default Cathy Duthart

I am sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but Cathy Duthart wife of Alex Duthart passed away on Monday. She had been ill for some time. I know that the thoughts and prayers of the piping and drumming community go out to the Duthart family.

My mother-in-law passed away peacefully at home early Monday morning after losing her battle with cancer.

She will be missed terribly by her family and many friends.

Cathie Duthart was a great lady.

She put up with all our comings and goings to their home at Braedale Cresent and she did it so graciously. The year I was working on a project for Alex, I was a guest in their house numerous times and she was always such a lovely lady... "Have you had your tea yet, for goodness sake have a cuppa tea"

Sometimes we would be up till the wee hours with big Alex chatting and laughing away about everything under the sun about music and drumming. First thing in the morning when you got up (Because Alex would batter on the guest door with ... "Are you not up yet, come on, Cathie's got yer breakfast is on the table"

The one story I can share about Cathie Duthart that will give some idea what a great lady she was. When Alex passed, it seemed like half the music world was at his funeral. Later at the luncheon Cathie was having to receive people as they were arriving at the door of the reception hall. As I approached, I could see her shaking hands with the famous along with all the not-so-famous, the friends and neighbours and people like me who were not family. As she listened to all the words of condolence, she was bearing up so bravely and graciously. All I wanted to do was just say hello and then get out of the way.
I was not prepared myself for what she was to say to me. To my utter amazement she was to give me the single greatest compliment any artist could ever get, she told me... "Over the years there's been a few pictures of Alex, but no one ever 'got' his hands the way you did, you really captured his hands". I was caught speechless, here she was dealing with the most emotional gut-wrenching day of her life and she's giving out compliments. When she gave me a hug, she was trembling like a leaf and said, "Oh Hamish, the house is going to be so quiet".

I'll never forget that great house of hospitality.

My thoughts are with the family.
