It starts with a love of music,
an appreciation of words,
and passionate communication,
and creative expression,
and the experience of having been inspired,
of having felt the magic
that sometimes gets created in live performance,
in the place where artists and audiences come together.

It grows – out of and into a sense of purpose;
to advocate on behalf of art, and spirit,
and the inspirational quality,
and with that comes a pledge –
to place and re-place the emphasis on essence and content,
and to create opportunities and environments that are richly rewarding,

Through the power of community,
and the energy of trust,
and a belief in the work and the vision,
and with the strength of stamina,
and the force of fulfillment,
it continues to expand.

Presenting TFT-TV!
(Tales from the Tavern Television)

Since 2003, Tales from the Tavern has presented close to 400 concerts with authentic troubadours / singer-songwriter-storytellers. Every single one of these shows have been filmed and recorded along with an interview with each artist. The filming, recording and archiving has been made possible through contributions from the nonprofit Artist Advocacy Foundation, which helps inspiring artists (musicians, poets, painters, filmmakers, photographers) in myriad ways, from basic living expenses to medical and dental, to equipment and materials, production and promotion, transportation, tour support, registration fees, and more. Your tax-deductible donation to TFT-TV helps the featured artists by replacing lost revenue due to Covid-19 work cancellations, and supports the ongoing work of the Artist Advocacy Foundation. Thank You.
