Muldoon’s Picnic
An omnium-gatherum of words and music

Hosted by Paul Muldoon, with house band Rogue Oliphant

“Okay, it's not actually a picnic but a music-and-literature extravaganza.” – Time Out New York

Pulitzer Prize-winning Irish poet, New Yorker Poetry Editor, and pop music lyricist Paul Muldoon returns for his fourth season of monthly words-and-music jamborees, joined by his house band Rogue Oliphant and always a stunning lineup of world-class special guests from the across the spectrum of music and literature. Some of the most special and surprising moments in our season happen at the Picnic so book your tickets early for this “only in New York” experience.

Monday, March 14 | 7:30 PM

Special Guests:

Laurie Anderson is an American performance artist, composer, and musician who plays violin and keyboards and sings in a variety of experimental music and art rock styles. Anderson’s genre-crossing work encompasses everything from film and music to writing, photography, and sculpture. Infused with her hallucinatory language, she weaves in eloquent leitmotifs and brilliantly conceived tangents to create a uniquely satisfying meta-narrative addressing universal themes in the vernacular of the commonplace.

Timothy Donnelly is an American poet and author of two books of poetry, Twenty-seven Props for a Production of Eine Lebenszeit, and The Cloud Corporation. He is an assistant professor and director of undergraduate creative writing at Columbia University, as well as the poetry editor for Boston Review.

Mark Mulcahy is an American musician and former frontman for the New Haven, Connecticut-based band Miracle Legion in the 1980s to mid-1990s. When the band disbanded, Mulcahy soon formed Polaris; a house band for the mid-1990s alternative television series The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Mulcahy is currently working on his solo career today via his own label Mezzotint.com.

Cait O’Riordan was a founding member and bass player for the London-Irish punk/folk band The Pogues, and currently enjoys a successful solo career.  She played bass guitar for the London-Irish punk/folk band The Pogues from 1983 to 1986, and later played with Elvis Costello, as well as on several other projects.
