Muldoon's Picnic

Hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon, this show is described by Muldoon himself as ‘an omnium-gatherum’, by Time Out as a ‘music-and-literature extravaganza’ and by us as a stonkingly good night out! Rarely staged outside New York, and in Edinburgh for one night only, Muldoon and his house band Rogue Oliphant (including  Cait O’Riordan of The Pogues, Chris Harford and Ray Kubian) are joined by special guests: Steeleye Span-singer Maddy Prior, singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan, award-winning writer Bernard MacLaverty and leading Scottish poet Don Paterson. Produced by Poetry Ireland and supported by an Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Arts Council of Northern Ireland Touring Grant. Hosted in New York City by the Irish Arts Center. Over 18s only.

Part of our Unbound series of events.
