From Brass Band to Buskers: Street Music in the UK report aims to chart and critically examine available writing about the historical and contemporary presence of street music in the cultural landscape. The research has been done in four parts: First, investigating the knowledge and understanding surrounding street music; second, examining the cultural value of street music; third, exploring the scope of street music practice within the UK in particular; finally, evaluating the role of street music in the continual formation of communities and sense of place.
