Men of Worth returning to Rock Springs!

Men of Worth returning to Rock Springs!

February 23, 2018

Broadway Theater, 7 p.m.

In 1986, Scotsman Donnie Macdonald and Irishman James Keigher came together to perform Irish and Scottish folk music, combining traditional and contemporary styles. The name "Men of Worth" was chosen from the title of a folk song written by the Scottish singer/songwriter Archie Fisher.

Together Men of Worth blend their voices with harmony and support their collection of songs with their varied selection of instruments. They have a very simple approach to their presentation, and in keeping with tradition, remain true to the music and story. Their show is a unique combination of humor, exciting tunes, and soulful, heartfelt ballads.
