Dining at The Old Inn on the Green is an extraordinary experience: fine wine, great food & the dining rooms are lit entirely by candlelight & there are fireplaces in each room. In the summer months, dinner is also served outside on the garden terrace under a graceful white canopy, overlooking a large colonial flower and herb garden.

The Fab Four is elevated far above every other Beatles tribute act due to their precise attention to detail. This incredible multimedia stage production includes three costume changes representing different eras of the Beatles’ evolving career. Hear record-perfect live performances of such classics as “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Yesterday,” “Twist And Shout,” and “Hey Jude.” This is a night to hear some of the greatest hits in musical history.
“To make it in this business, you either have to be first, great or different,” says living legend Loretta Lynn. “And I was the first to ever go into Nashville, singin’ it like the women lived it.”
In addition to being “first,” she was also “great” and “different.” Loretta’s instantly recognizable delivery is one of the greatest country-music voices in history. As for “different,” no songwriter has a more distinctive body of work. In lyrics such as “Don’t
Come Home A-Drinkin’” and “Your Squaw Is on the War Path,” she refused to be any man’s doormat. She challenged female rivals in “You Ain’t Woman Enough” and “Fist City.” She showed tremendous blue-collar pride in “Coal Miner’s Daughter” and
“You’re Lookin’ at Country.” She is unafraid of controversy, whether the topic is sex (“Wings Upon Your Horns”), divorce (“Rated X”), alcohol (“Wouldn’t It Be Great”), war (“Dear Uncle Sam”), or “The Pill,” her celebration of sexual liberation, which were among some of her songs to be banned by many radio stations. Like the lady herself, Loretta Lynn’s songs shoot from the hip.
As millions who read her 1976 autobiography or saw its Oscar winning 1980 film treatment are aware, Loretta is a Coal Miner’s Daughter who was raised in dire poverty in a remote Appalachian Kentucky hamlet. Living in a mountain cabin with seven
brothers and sisters, she was surrounded by music as a child.
“Before I was singing, I cleaned house; I took in laundry; I picked berries. I worked seven days a week. I was a housewife and mother for 15 years before I was an entertainer. And it wasn’t like being a housewife today. It was doing hand laundry on a board and cooking on an old coal stove. I grew a garden and canned what I grew. That’s
what’s real. I know how to survive.”
She was inducted into the national Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York in 2008. She may have won a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010, but Loretta Lynn’s life is still a work in progress. She’s still out there on the road, still writing songs and still recording them as only she can. “I ain’t a star – a star is something up in the night sky,” says Loretta Lynn. “People say to me, ‘You’re a legend.’ I’m not a legend. I’m just a woman.”

In March of 2014 Worcester Tree Initiative hosted a community discussion on Urban Orchards in Worcester. The discussion was fruitful in a number of ways and in the 9 months since Worcester has seen the creation of three new urban orchards/groves, one on Jaques Ave off of Chandler St. and another at the top of Newton Hill, adjacent to Elm Park, and the third in Dodge Park on Randolph Rd.
In this discussion Worcester Tree Initiative would like to share about what we learned in the process of planning and planting these urban orchards with a brief presentation, as well as continue the discussion. We encourage anyone with a desire to see more food growing within the city limits to join the conversation and bring their thoughts to the table. Location: Saxe Room - Main Library

What is Minecraft? Minecraft is a video game in which players create and break apart various kinds of blocks in three-dimensional worlds. The game’s two main modes are Survival and Creative. In Survival, players must find their own building supplies and food. They also interact with blocklike mobs, or moving creatures. (Creepers and zombies are some of the dangerous ones.) In Creative, players are given supplies and do not have to eat to survive. They also can break all kinds of blocks immediately. The purpose of the game is simply to build and explore (and survive).

Kneehigh’s Tristan & Yseult elevates this classic love triangle to epic proportions – complete with forbidden desires, broken hearts and tender truths. This innovative tale finds King Mark of Cornwall at war – ruling with his head, not his heart. But he hasn’t counted on falling head over heels for his enemy’s sister Yseult, or on the arrival of the enigmatic Tristan. Using music from Irving Berlin to Bob Marley, Kneehigh’s thrill-ride of a production blends comedy, live music and jaw-dropping theatricality for a night of theatre as hilarious as it is moving.

with Milton A stunningly sweet singer with a uniquely expressive voice, Kat Edmonson's music has a timeless sound. In a few short years, she has gone from singing in small rooms in her native Texas to concert halls and festivals around the world, playing dates with the likes of Gary Clark Jr., Lyle Lovett, Michael Kiwanuka and Chris Isaak. She's made memorable turns on "Austin City Limits", "A Prairie Home Companion" and had her songs featured on several television shows and commercials. Such exciting growth is not surprising or unexpected for Edmonson. Her 2009 debut, Take to the Sky, comprised creative interpretations of standards and pop hits while her brilliant 2012 follow-up, Way Down Low, was called "one of the greatest vocal albums I've ever heard" by The Boston Globe. The album, which featured both originals and covers in styles from pop and country to jazz and bossa nova, earned her universal critical acclaim, and the attention of Sony Music Masterworks, who will release her third album, The Big Picture.The Big Picture builds upon her previous works, but offers even more of her writing (she wrote or co-wrote 11 of 12 songs on the album), and more still of Kat's unique sound. With no formal vocal training, she instead learned her craft as a child by watching Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals on the VCR, drawing inspiration for this album from old films and her favorite songwriters. The result is a delicious batch of pop perfection, with a dozen songs that are tight, polished and more upbeat than anything she's done before. Edmonson draws from a wellspring of '50s and '60s pop, '70s AM radio, present-day pop-rock and movie soundtracks. The Big Picture is smart, sophisticated and fun and simultaneously classic and modern.
