The Worcester area is known for its great food at reasonable prices. And guess what? The price just got better: $23.12 per meal from March 19th to 31st. It’s the semi-annual Worcester Restaurant Week, a time when people can sample the food of some of our best restaurants without breaking the bank. Twice a year, the finest restaurants in the Worcester area lower their prices and offer a special Chef’s Menu.

In an all-new episode, Steve D'Agostino interviews three of the participants in the latest Worcester Restaurant Week:

Molasses Creek, Acoustic folk & Marc Pinansky, country/folk/pop

Phenomenal songwriters and interpreters of song, Molasses Creek's concerts run the gamut of traditional to contemporary acoustic, sweet ballads with ensnaring vocal harmonies, hot instrumentals, quirky vaudevillian pieces, and captivating stage banter stitching it all together. From Okracoke Island, North Carolina. Expect the unexpected . . . unexpect the expected!

Buddy Mondlock

Buddy Mondlock writes songs and he does it so well that great songwriters Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith and Janis Ian, to name just a few, have recorded his songs on their own albums. But there is nothing like hearing the Buddy sing his own songs. He’s not going to pin your ears back with those songs. He’s going to draw you into his world.

Andrew McKnight

Over his 15 year career, Andrew McKnight has enjoyed many accolades within the folk music world. His five solo CDs have earned much critical acclaim and airplay around the world as well as a wealth of NPR stations and several XM/Sirius satellite shows. Andrew’s solo performances are like one man theatre; the songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, and the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune.
