Blind fiddlers of Sheffield Honoured

A plaque has been unveiled to pay tribute to Sam Goodlad who was a local musician and Philanthropist  in the 1800s.  He supported the formation of the Blind Fiddlers of Sheffield group and the musicians played in his pub called the Q in the Corner on Paradise Square.  Though the pub has long gone the musical tradition they were part of  is still going strong.   The original building is still there and the plaque is now hangs on its wall.
