Muldoon’s Picnic – 2019 Irish Tour dates

An omnium-gatherum of poetry, prose and music, Muldoon’s Picnic is hosted by the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon,‘the most significant English-language poet born since the Second World War’ (Times Literary Supplement).

After ten sold out seasons at the Irish Arts Center in New York and a highly successful Irish tour in 2017, Muldoon’s Picnic returns for six dates nationwide 2nd-11th August 2019.

Paul Muldoon describes ‘Muldoon’s Picnic’ as a direct response to that ancient impulse to perform, to share, to make one’s own amusement; “It’s one of our most basic instincts; to listen to a song, listen to a poem. Even in this era when people have their noses stuck in their tablets, it still works.”

The house band for the show is Rogue Oliphant – a collective of musicians and composers including Chris Harford (Three Colors, Band of Changes), Cait O’Riordan (The Pogues), David Mansfield (Bob Dylan, The Alpha Band) and Ray Kubian (Electric Six, Chris Forsyth).

Produced by Poetry Ireland and supported by an Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Arts Council of Northern Ireland Touring Grant.
