Prominent Dundee jazz guitarist David Moodie has died at the age of 80.
Mr Moodie played with the East Coast Jazzmen and the Ian Duncan Dance Band.
The groups were famed in the Fife and Tayside areas from the 1950s onwards, performing at jazz venues and at a wide range of other functions.
He was inspired to play the guitar during his national service in Egypt and when he returned to Dundee he taught himself to play the instrument to a high standard.
His son Paul said his father had a variety of jobs throughout his life but his music was his main interest.
“He loved to play the guitar and perform, and the money he earned at his jobs was to supplement what he earned as a musician,” he said.
Mr Moodie grew up in the family home on Mortimer Street and went to SS Peter and Paul’s Primary and Lawside Academy.
He went to work as a salesman for Caird’s outfitters on Reform Street and after his national service he returned to the shop.
There followed spells as a lighthouseman at Stranraer and South Uist and on returning to Dundee he was employed by Low & Bonar.
Mr Moodie then took his family to Canada where they stayed for eight years.
In Toronto he joined other immigrant Scots and they formed the jazz band the Metro Stompers.
Returning to Dundee in 1973, he worked for Bonar Long before retiring. In later years he did not enjoy the best of health but was able to play guitar into his seventies.
Mr Moodie is survived by wife Carol, three sons, a stepson and stepdaughter.
