Pure Prairie League + Firefall Play ‘Wormstock’ at Mechanic’s Hall

Thursday, February 13, 2014


Pure Prairie League

For one night in March in Worcester, the spirit of Woodstock will live again.

That is the promise made by Symply Fargone Productions, who on March 18th will be bringing country-rock legends Pure Prairie League and Firefall to Worcester's Mechanic's Hall.

Country-Rock Legends


These influential artists have been making hits on and off since the early 1970s in the mould of Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, or CSNY. Firefall's eponymous debut was the fastest album in Atlantic Records storied history to hit gold in 1976. Pure Prairie League has been a college radio darling since their hit "Amie" hit the airwaves in 1972. Both bands feature funky, quirky rock and roll sounds that meld a variety of American genres.

Symply Fargone Productions aims to make Worcester a destination for live music and entertainment. The production company, founded by two Worcester natives, is also presenting folk-rock luminary Tom Rush at Mechanic's Hall on February 27th.

Call it a warmup for Wormstock.
