Heart Unions Week: “I've been a member of the MU for 10 years”

To celebrate Heart Unions Week, we asked MU members what the Union means to them. Share the love using the hashtag #HeartUnions


This Heart Unions Week , Laura Kidd aka She Makes War shares her thoughts on what the Musicians’ Union means to her…


Laura Kidd Quote in Graphic form

“I've been a member of the MU for 10 years and in that time have felt empowered by the knowledge that I'm not alone.

“As an independent recording artist and session musician I've gone to the Union for legal assistance on numerous occasions, and have always been impressed staff are able to give my issues a proper amount of time and consideration.

“They must be extremely busy but the services they're able to offer are invaluable.”

Feeling inspired?
