Fiddle Orchestra of Devon (FOOD)

This group is for the Fiddle Orchestra for the Summer Term. Scroll down to join the group.

It is open to existing members and new members. Suitable for anyone with an instrument from the fiddle family. You can join from anywhere in the world, but please note we are hoping for at least some of this term to include in-person rehearsals in central Devon, UK towards the end of term.

Each month you will have access to a brand new arrangement of a tune. This will be taught via learning videos that you can return to at any time. You can also download scores and sound files to support your learning.

In addition, each month our fabulous fiddler Hannah Cumming focuses on a fiddle technique that will help you to enjoy playing that month's tune even more.

At monthly live sessions we get to know each other, ask questions and share ideas about the arrangements, and we have the opportunity to play together as well.

This term the live sessions will be:

  • Saturday 17 April, 10.30am
  • Saturday 15 May, 10.30am
  • Saturday 26 June, 10.00am
  • Saturday 17 July, 10.00am

June and July sessions are due to start a little earlier because we hope they will be in person rehearsals at Meldon Village Hall, Meldon, Okehampton, EX20 4LU. This will be in line with England's government guidelines.

If we cannot run the sessions in person they will continue online. If you have any questions you can contact the FOOD team via [email protected]
