After a childhood playing folk music around campfires, Jenny M. Thomas took up intense study of classical viola and South Indian Carnatic violin before roaming the countryside of Finland and Ireland learning traditional fiddle styles. Jenny has composed music for ABC Classic FM, performed with Circus Oz, toured Europe as an improvising violinist, composed music for ABC TV plus performed as a Norwegian hardanger and Irish fiddle soloist with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and The Sydney Symphony Orchestras.

Described by The Guardian as an ‘Edgy rising folk star’ she established post-modern bush band Bush Gothic and as band leader and fiddle-singer took their radical re-imaginings of traditional Australian folk songs to the world's most happening festivals including Mona Foma, Festival No 6 (Wales), RIFF (India), Shambala (UK). Their music has been awarded 5 STARS by BBC Music Magazine, featured on BBC Radio, chosen by the 2020 Welsh National Eisteddfod to represent Australia and continues to change the way Australians listen to their own history.
