A worthy duet — Scotsman Donnie Macdonald and Irishmman James Keigher — formally known as Men of Worth, play at the Peninsula College Little Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 27, as a part of the Juan de Fuca Foundation for the Arts’ monthly concert series.

The group visits again after a successful performance last year.

They formed in 1986 to perform Irish and Scottish folk music, combining traditional and contemporary styles. Their harmonies, collection of songs and varied selection of instruments combine humor, fun tunes and soulful, heartfelt ballads.

Men of Worth has performed throughout the world with 11 albums and more than two decades of touring.

They’ve toured Ireland and Scotland nearly 40 times. Tickets are $15 at www.brownpapertickets.com. For more information, visit jffa.org. Submitted photo
