In September last year, Help Musicians UK launched the Transmission Fund, which allows musicians to grow through funding career development opportunities such as short courses, workshops or one-to-one coaching sessions. We funded Bex Burch to return to western Ghana where she had previously spent three years living, farming and learning with the Dagaare tribe.

We caught up with Bex after her trip, and she gave us her thoughts on money and funding when you're a musician.
