Characterised today by its 'Keep Music Live' slogan (which was first coined in the 1960s) the Musicians Union represents over 30,000 musicians working in all sectors of the music business. The records of the union and its predecessors, which date back to the 1870s, provide a detailed account of the various challenges (both political and technological) which have faced performing musicians over the last century.
