Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. James Keigher and Donnie Macdonald formed the folk-music duo Men of Worth in 1986. Exiles from their home countries of Ireland and Scotland, they first met through the Celtic music scene in Southern California. Within a couple of years, they developed a partnership that was simultaneously serious and fun. James Keigher comes from County Mayo in the west of Ireland. He is a singer, writer and collector of traditional and contemporary folk music. Keigher was raised in Charlestown, a small rural community steeped in traditional music and stories. He performs on vocals, guitar, mando-cello and bodhran. Donnie Macdonald comes from the Isle of Lewis, one of the Hebridean islands off the west coast of Scotland. Writing tunes and original songs in both his first language, Gaelic, and in English, MacDonald presents music from his native Scotland with passion and humor. He performs on vocals, octave mandolin, tenor banjo, concertina and bodhran. Together as Men of Worth, Keigher and MacDonald blend their voices in harmony and support their collection of James Keigher, left, and Donnie MacDonald perform traditional Scottish and Irish tun~s as Men of Worth in a St. Paddy's Day concert at the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy.
