Craig briefs: ‘Men of Worth’ to perform concert today
January 26, 2010
The Craig Concert Association presents "Men of Worth," a duo performing traditional Celtic music, original compositions and poetry, beginning at 7:30 p.m. today in the auditorium at Moffat County High School, 900 Finley Lane.
"Men of Worth" consists of James Keigher, of Ireland, and Donnie Macdonald, of Scotland.
"Together, they blend their voices with harmony and support their collection of songs with such varied instruments as the mandocello, octave mandolin and the 'genuine Irish' bodhrans they bought from the Cuban guy in a Texas hotel room," the Concert Association wrote in a news release.
Admission is $20 at the door. Call Julie Dempster at 824-5251.
