She started out surrounded by Northumbrian folk music, and draws deeply on this in her own fiddle playing, singing and writing, described by Mark Radcliffe as “fascinating and intoxicating”. Frankie has travelled, taught, learned and performed in many different places around the world, enriching her style and musical identity. “A fascinating and intoxicating blend of the contemporary and the traditional” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 “Not many manage to sound so modern and traditional at once” – Adrian McNally, The Unthanks — Mush Collective (MC) is made up of long term collaborators Nicky Rushton and Sarah Van Jellie, with Susanne Lambert, Penny Callow and Bernard Wright.

Since 2017 Mush have taken their work in a new direction, honing their current sound and approach, and trying out new ways of working, including collaborating with Turner Prize winning artist Lubaina Himid.
