"May, 2009"

"Wherever you see them, you won’t be disappointed." - Worcester Magazine


"Danu & Rattle the Boards"

"It has been a real pleasure over the years for me to meet, hang out and even play with other fantastic bands outside of Ireland.Band with an equal love for traditional Irish music. One such band for me is Worcester's own "Fergus", a great band with a great attitude. I wish them every success in this fantastic new album aptly entitled "Green Street", I am sure they will paint many streets green over the coming years. Fair play to you Fergus" Benny McCarthy (Danú & Rattle The Boards) - Benny McCarthy


"Lunasa"

"Having had the pleasure of experiencing Fergus up close and in the flesh I'm waiting with baited breath for their new CD which is sure to be a cracker. Great musicians, great singers and great people Fergus are pioneering a new direction in Irish music all the while respectful of the tradition in which they are so obviously steeped in." - Kevin Crawford

Fergus is a five piece contemporary Irish group from Worcester, Massachusetts. 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 (jazz, funk, rock, country) and world music (electronica, Indian, Latin, Celtic) with Irish music in an acoustic setting. Since its formation, the band has become one of the most sought after Irish bands in New England.

Fergus was formed in 2007 as a trio (Voice, Guitar, Bass), the band quickly found itself in demand through out New England. They released their first EP “Seven Hills” in early 2008, the CD sold out within the first six months. In 2009 Fergus became a five piece (adding drums and fiddle) in an effort to realize a larger sound for the band. They went into the studio in late 2009 to record their first full-length CD “Green St.”

Fergus has performed at festivals and clubs through out New England and opened for artists such as Lunasa, Derek Warfield And The Young Wolfe Tones, Benny McCarthy and Oisin McAuley of Danu, and Rattle the Boards. The band has also had the privlege of performing for former President Willam Jefferson Clinton as well as many former and present senators, congressmen, and prominent Massachusetts politicians.
