The Galician fiddler, Florencio López Fernández (1914–1986) was a blind travelling musician who played all over Galicia in Northern Spain at village patrons’ day festivals, markets and other celebrations with his brother who accompanied him on the drum and wrote down and sold the texts of the ballads. After his brother’s death, Florencio was cared for by a farmer and his wife in the town of Fontaneira.
