The Men of Worth’s tunes and songs are so authentic, so closely connected to their heritage, that Scotsman Donnie Macdonald sings some in his native Gaelic; while Irishman James Keigher includes time-polished pieces saved from the oral traditions of his native County Mayo. “Our music has its history in the crofting life of my Hebridean homeland and James’ western Ireland. It was a part of the fabric of everyday life and it came to America with the immigrants a century ago”, explained Macdonald.The essence of ‘Men of Worth’ is in their live performance. It’s clear that after 25 years, these two are still enjoying what they do. They’re funny guys – not only talented musicians but extremely engaging performers, spiking their traditional tunes with tales from their homelands and plenty of unscripted comic interplay.
