Testimonials and Reviews

The Oxford Fiddle Group are in concert at the Jacqueline du Pre Centre in Oxford. Having followed their progress for the last few years, I am blown away by the quality, enthusiasm and sheer joy of their music being performed to a packed house. A group of people performing for the love of the music and their dedication to their chosen instrument. Their second album, ‘Beyond the Spires’, captures that feel and quality and will lift the spirits of the listener as it does mine. Long may this unique group continue.

I was dreading this – my friend said that it was folk music, but I really enjoyed it!

Such joyful sounds filled our church yesterday at the Oxford Fiddle Group Concert held at St Mary’s, Drayton Beauchamp.

Congratulations on organising yesterday. Everything more than met expectations.

Such a fabulous afternoon and we raised a spectacular amount of money for St. Mary’s. The Oxford Fiddle Group are just remarkable in every way and it was such a treat to see them performing again. My feet were tapping from start to finish!!

I enjoyed the concert thoroughly as it is my type of music and the setting for it was perfect. What a great group of musicians!

That was way beyond my expectations, really well done.

Thanks for a lovely afternoon concert yesterday. We all enjoyed it.

We really enjoyed the “Fiddlers” despite the medieval torture pews.

What an absolutely fabulous afternoon! We so enjoyed the concert, with so many surprises – Appalachian clogging and a Nepalese nose flute to name but two.

Comments after an OFG concert in a Buckinghamshire church

The group took the crowd on a journey of musical geography; inviting friends to perform Appalachian dancing or educating us with songs from Abingdon. And it’s all full of good old-fashioned fun.

…the massed consort of the OFG in full-fiddle-flight is a wondrous thing indeed!

…both genuinely stirring and warmly nostalgic.

…the Oxford Fiddle Group hold us in thrall.

Oxford should be proud to have such a fine group of musicians.

Fourteen players made up the giant wall of sound that is the Oxford Fiddle Group. And as they broke into song, out came our smiles. It is difficult not to beam with such energy in the room.
