Moody McCarthy is a stand-up comedian who has performed on Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Last Comic Standing, and Star Search. He lives in New York City with his wife and step-dog.

Moody began his career in his hometown of Syracuse, NY, in the 1900s. Many who witnessed his early performances forecast stardom. Moody proved those people wrong.

After six years Moody moved to New York City, where those who heard his jokes predicted he’d be courted by A-list producers as a writer. That has not happened.

But after 20+ years honing his craft, Moody has steadily gained the respect of his peers and audiences everywhere. With unpredictable material, a disarming presence, and in-the-moment chops, here is a comic who thrives in any venue and will brighten any event.

Tickets go on sale 7/1. 8pm performance.

Our Sunday Music Series features local and regional upcoming artists. Alison and Zoë are two Irish-born sisters. They are singer-songwriters who create enchanting harmonies and weave stories with their poetic original songs. They share songs in living rooms, on trains and buses, around fires, on stages, and mostly anywhere else that you might meet them. They are currently working on their first all original album entitled “Emerge.” They hope to one day travel the world sharing their music and learning songs from different cultures.

Please join historian and guide Laurel Auchampaugh for a fascinating tour of the beautiful wooded Fort Hill Cemetery overlooking downtown Auburn. Its hilltop location, fortified many centuries ago by the mysterious mound building peoples of North America, later was reputed to be the site of an important Cayuga council seat and village.

In 1852 the hilltop was dedicated for its current function; it remains an active cemetery today. On the tour you will learn about the lives of several eminent citizens who are buried there, including the man first buried here, Judge Elijah Miller, his famous son-in-law William H. Seward, his daughter and granddaughter. Elsewhere in the cemetery, pay your respects to abolitionist and humanitarian Harriet Tubman, to members of the Osborne, Willard, and Case families, and to many others who contributed to America’s story. Take a tour of the gothic stone Bradley Chapel, and learn the story of a 50 foot tall obelisk inscribed, “Who Mourns for Logan?” In the event of rain, the talk will take place inside the Bradley Chapel.

Tickets for the tour are $10 for adults, $5 for students. These may be purchased at the time of the tour, or in advance at the Willard Chapel, 17 Nelson Street in Auburn during office business hours Tuesdays through Fridays, 10am-4pm. Call 315-252-0339 for more information. This tour is sponsored by the Community Preservation Committee. Proceeds benefit the Fort Hill Cemetery and the Willard Chapel.
