I have 2 stories about Kate. As she became better known and her piano playing became more inventive, many wannabes tried to imitate her. Some were more successful than others.

I asked her for her secret. She looked at her left hand and replied, "I always know where this is going, it keeps my beat."

Another humorous story. Kate has always been a superb cross dresser. We were at Pinewoods for a Scottish weekend and people were drifting into C#. Two venerable sisters were sitting on the side when Kate strolled in. She stopped to chat with them. They had no idea who this attractive woman was. Visitors are seldom allowed to attend the sessions and they finally had to ask. "We haven't seen you before tonight. Have you just arrived?", they asked. With a chuckle, Peter introduced himself.
