Summary
"This book concerns itself with the practical use that labour activists made of music in entertaining the comrades, propagating the socialist message and raising funds, as well as the formation of musical organizations and societies within the movement and the special place given to music and song during times of struggle. In so doing it attempts both to sketch a national picture and to offer a more detailed look at the musicality of local areas, focusing on the cities and surrounding districts of Birmingham and Bradford."--BOOK JACKET
