“OK, it’s not actually a picnic but a music & literature extravaganza”
Named after a popular New York vaudeville act and an Irish-American knockabout farce from the 1880s, Muldoon’s Picnic is an entertainment devised, developed, and hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon.
Celebrating its tenth anniversary at the Irish Arts Center in New York City, the Picnic has also toured widely in Ireland, most recently in August 2022. It will arrive in Sharon Springs NY on Saturday, September 10, 2022, before returning to take up residence in New York.
Billed as a mixum-gatherum of poetry, prose, and music, Muldoon’s Picnic has featured appearances by hundreds of artists. In addition to the “house band” Rogue Oliphant, the Sharon Springs Picnic will feature renowned musicians Richard Thompson and Zara Phillips along with poet Patricia Smith and, of course, poet Paul Muldoon himself.
