What Parents Are Saying about AJCB

"Our son, Noah, has been a member of the Atlanta Junior Ceili Band for more than six years now. It has been the most wonderful experience for both my son and our family.  Katherine Irwin Thomas has taught our son to play Irish fiddle by ear and he has become a skilled fiddler and tenor banjo player.  She has instilled a love of Irish music in him.  Noah has played with the band on countless stages and traveled to competitions. The experience he has gained has been immeasurable.  As a family, we have enjoyed seeing the band play with renowned musicians, for groups and organizations, at festivals and community events.  Having our son be a part of the Atlanta Junior Ceili Band has enriched Noah's life as well as our own."
