Wednesday 1st December, 7.30.

Artists include;
James Fagan & Nancy Kerr, Gavin Davenport, Skyhook, Richard & Jess Arrowsmith, Paul & Liz Davenport, Gina Le Faux with James Reynard & Laurie Faux, South Riding 'Chamber Orchestra'.

The concert is to finance the placing of a 'blue plaque' in Paradise Square, Sheffield to honour Samuel Goodlad, publican, violinist and philanthropist who taught and organised Sheffield's many blind musicians. Goodlad set a high standard and challenged the contemporary view that the blind were of no worth. He created a legacy of fine musicianship amongst these musicians and gave the town's population an appreciation of the blind which may account for the fact that Sheffield created the first school for the blind in UK.

Tickets £10 including Pie & Pea supper. Exellent beer brewed on site. Come and support this worthy cause.

There will be a special brew, 'Blind Fiddler' which will contribute a percentage of each pint sold to the cause. How can anyone resist?

We're nearly sold out! Can't believe the last minute response. Mostly locals who want a great night out and don't fancy driving in the snow I suspect. Still some tickets left - Tel. 01142 322 100 to book yours.

Paul, do you think the weather is likely to affect any of the arrangements for tomorrow?

There are over seventy people booked in so far and we're going ahead with it. As long as main routes are clear we're fine as the Hillsborough Hotel is on a main road. See you there!

Finally got onto Mudcat!
Sorry to say that we have finally had to give in - Total Eclise is postponed until 19th January 2011. The snow is horrific in Sheffield and the buses aren't running. Here in Maltby it has been snowing on and off all day and there are two feet of snow outside in the street.
People wanting to attend this event need to keep an eye on the Facebook page 'Blind Fiddlers of Sheffield' where we post all our stuff.
sorry folks
Paul
