Men of Worth to perform Friday

Men of Worth to perform FridayMen of Worth featuring Donnie MacDonald and James Keigher will once again delight an Indian Wells Valley audience when they appear in concert at the Cerro Coso Community College Lecture Center on Friday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m., courtesy of Student Development Funds at Cerro Coso.

The concert features the very best in Celtic music — songs that come from past generations as well as stories from present-day observations. Donnie MacDonald, a Scotsman, and Jimmy Keigher, an Irishman, combine music with humor in a very special union that leaves audiences laughing and cheering for more.

On stage the two musicians perform with octave mandolin, accordion, bodhrans, guitar, banjo and mandolin while singing their songs in both English and Gaelic. Their vocals are rich with harmony and strong in unison.

Together Men of Worth have a simple approach to their presentation, and in keeping with tradition, remain true to the music and story. They have been recording and performing since 1986 and have gained popularity from audiences all over America, Canada, Scotland and Ireland.

CD’s and tapes will be offered for sale during intermission and after the concert.

The price of general admission is $15, or $10 per student with current ASCC “Coyote Card.”Tickets are available at the Student Activities Office or at the door, if space is available. For more information call the Student Activities Office at 760-384-6353.
