Nov 18, 2017

Men of Worth  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.  Amongst other notable credits, Donnie and James are responsible for your concert coordinator, Carol Schryver-Bloom, discovering her voice and nurturing her passion for Celtic music.  Men of Worth are an international act and have earned much respect and success in over thirty years of touring together.  Performing concerts and festivals, with twelve albums to their credit, Men of Worth continue the very tradition from which they've evolved.  

The MacMammals have come full circle.  The husband and wife team of Carol Schryver-Bloom and Ron Bloom share the evening with old musical pals.  The MacMammals have drawn influence from Men of Worth over the years and will be presenting their own unique selections of music from Ireland, Scotland, England, and North America.  Backed up by guitar, mandolin, and Irish bouzouki, Carol’s crystalline vocals blend with Ron’s warm harmonies to produce a unique compilation of music that can only be described as “MacMammalian.”
