Date: June 29, 2017

Presented By: City of Worcester and Worcester Cultural Coalition

The Out to Lunch Concert Series and Farmers Market brings live bands, outdoor performers, artisans, nonprofits, food, farms, and fun to Worcester Common! The Common located behind Worcester City Hall at 455 Main Street.

Created by the Worcester Cultural Coalition, the concert series and farmers market runs every Thursday from June to August and is part of an effort to bring 100 events to Worcester Common this year! 

No neart go cur le chelie, meaning "There's strength in unity," celebrates the genre of today's performers. Fergus is a contemporary Irish group from Worcester. The band performs the songs of Irish songwriters and arrangers of the last 60 years, original songs and arrangements, and traditional Irish Music. The sound of Fergus blends elements of American music and world music with Irish music in an acoustic setting. Our intermission act, the McInerney School of Irish Dance, was established by Mary McInerney-Zona in 1983. "Mary Mac" as she was known to all, began her study of Irish Step Dance in NYC. She danced with the O'Sullivan School of Irish Dancing through 1977. From there Mary moved to New England where continued her education in Irish Dance with the Michael Smith Academy in Boston now known as the Smith-Houlihan Academy. Mary lost her battle with cancer on July 23, 2009. Mary's Legacy will continue through her Supportive Family. Clare McInerney-Gentilucci TCRG, along with her sister Ann and brother Sean danced with Mary over the years. Former champion dancers themselves, they have helped promote the Irish tradition and have brought light-hearted enjoyment to many of our events.
