Object of the Month - August 2019 - Blind Mattie's Melodeon

Street musicians were a common sight in Dundee in the 19th/early 20th centuries, and The McManus has a display featuring several well-known blind musicians who performed in Dundee in its Making of Modern Dundee gallery.

Erin Farley from Dundee Libraries' Local History department talks about these musicians, and in particular Blind Mattie, in The McManus' latest Object of the Month.
