Cape Breton Piano: Mildred Leadbeater

A player I have very little information about - if you can add to this, please write me.

She played for Johhny Wilmot sometime during the period he was recording (1951-1964). She can be heard on Breton Books and Music's reissue of Johhny Wilmot's old 78's Another Side of Cape Breton.

(May 2001) Just had a nice (but short!) email from her daughter - who didn't identify herself further, saying:

"Roger...She is alive and well at 81 years old...she is also my mother! :-)". Which was nice to hear. Unfortunatly I tried to write back to her to thank her and her mailbox seems to be over quota -
