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 -
