The Artists

The Funny Bones are an ensemble formed at the Royal Academy of Music in the heart of London, brought together by their mutual love of chamber music and the way it can be expressed so uniquely through the trombone. They aspire to extend this love of their music as far as they can, enjoying not only the traditional trombone repertoire but also writing many arrangements for the group themselves, with the aim to curate a diverse array of pieces which can cater to the strengths of each player in the quartet.

The ensemble are the 2024 winners of the Musicians’ Company Brass Ensemble Prize, leaving them delighted to be Young Artists of the Company. The group are proud to be under the tutelage of the likes of Ian Bousfield, Peter Moore, Matthew Gee and Bob Hughes, which they believe has been an important factor in their success as an ensemble. Collectively, the members of The Funny Bones have performed at numerous prestigious venues, such as the Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, the Auditorio Nacional de España and as a group are proud to have recently performed at Regent Hall and within the Royal Academy of Music.

In the future, the group is planning to travel abroad together and share their playing with other countries, with upcoming trips to include Germany and Spain.
