Visit of The Quaker City String Band to Craggagh NS

We had a brilliant morning following the St Patrick’s weekend festivities welcoming Jim, Jim and Patrick to our school. They are members of the Quaker City String Band.

The Jims played alto saxaphone and banjo while Patrick played the double bass (or “bass fiddle” as he calls it!).

We listened to them playing a few tunes and we also played our tin whistles, accordions, guitars and ukuleles.

It was a very enjoyable morning. Thanks to the three gentlemen for visiting and thanks to our wonderful Tourism Association in Kiltimagh for all their hard work preparing for the festival.

Below is a video from the full band’s amazing performance in the New Year’s Day Parade in Philadelphia:
