Folk Orchestra of North Devon, or FOND, formed in 2007 and meets on Mondays in Great Torrington.
FOND has featured at many events over the years both as a concert band and providing music for dancing at ceilidhs, bringing good quality folk music to venues in and around North Devon. In 2019 they toured their own themed show with the North Devon Folk Choir, ‘Trade Roots’, exploring North Devon’s links with the rest of the world. A mixture of songs, melodies, old photographs and period readings, capturing the essence and excitement of the glorious ages of seaborne trade. They have also played weddings plus Christmas concerts with other Wren groups of the area.
