“Musician” Bradman’s family invited to watch Ashes Test

Don Bradman’s family has been invited to watch the Test match at Lord’s. David Wells, the curator at Bradman Foundation, speaking exclusively from Sydney, said, “Ms. Greta (Bradman’s grand-daughter) is currently in London and recently attended a dinner at Lord’s with her father John. This dinner was jointly arranged by the M.C.C. and the South Australian Cricket Association”.

“In addition some of Sir Donald’s personal pieces are currently on display at the Lord’s Museum (from Adelaide) to coincide with the visit by the Bradman’s and the Lord’s Test match”.

“Don Bradman’s grand daughter Greta sung few songs at the finest concert halls”.

“Bradman often sought solace in music throughout his long life both during and after cricket. For example when touring he was often found playing the piano when other members of the team were in the bar”.

“His love of music has been passed on to his grand-daughter Greta who is a widely acclaimed soprano. He has written of his love for music in much of the copious correspondence that he generated with people all around the world”, he further added.
