The Music group was started in 2019 with the remit of creating events on all aspects of music beyond 'classical music'. Thus it is intended to cover jazz, folk, pop/rock, and other genres as opportunity provides! The two convenors are Ian Gilchrist and Tim Snowden.

The BRLSI's Music Programme continues digitally and online during the pandemic.

There are two recorded interviews now available on the BRLSI YouTube channel:
'Prog Rock in the 1970s', interview with John Sandford
'Bob Dylan' interview with Matthew Zuckerman
