“Purveyors of uplifting and exhilarating music” – BBC Radio 3

‘The TFG (as we say) was founded in 2006 in London by a group of leading players in London’s early-music scene with the core goal of devoting ourselves to overlooked repertoire. It started slowly, with a few concerts in London and Liverpool, but since then have recorded four critically-acclaimed CDs and performed at many of Europe’s most prestigious festivals and also on radio broadcasts.’ – taken from The Harmonious Society of Tickle-Fiddle Gentlemen (
