Ta' Verna is folk revival band from Gozo, first establish in the early 1980s and returned on the local music scene in 2004.

Following a long hiatus, some of the musicians from original group approached George Bonello to reform the band. The new formation consisted of accordion, harmonica, friction drum (rabbaba), Maltese tambourine, guitar, castanets and triangle.

In February 2004 they played their first gig in the formation at the Kummittiva Xagħra, a traditional dance held during Carnival days. They then went on to play at other villages in Gozo.

They have also played in Austria, Italy (Tuscany), and Slovakia (Nitra).

Aside from tradiational Maltese folk music, the band also plays various international folk songs, primarily as they see themselves as entertainers.
