community music in the United Kingdom,history,animateur,definitions

This article suggests that community music in the United Kingdom emerged as a sub-strand of the community arts movement during the political and cultural changes of the late 1960s and the early 1970s. Through five themes: musicians in residence, music animateur, music collectives and punk rock, definitions, and training, Part 1 of this article establishes the significant trajectory of the community arts movement. This groundwork provides the foundations through which community music later develops. Part 2 illuminates particular aspects of the UK scene that contribute to community music’s very particular identity.
