p_scottmad.jpgIt is surprising that so little is known about this performer considering the large number of compositions located.

According to the Internet source given below, Percy L. Day writing of her recorded:
.... What is more, as a sand dancer, Miss Maidie Scott, who is 22, with a ripe and wide versatility acquired in drama, pantomime, music-hall business, etc., is par excellence
