We end Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2020 with a very special evening of poetry and song from Paul Muldoon and Lisa Lambe. Paul Muldoon’s latest collection, Frolic and Detour has all the passion and provocation we associate with his writing, reminding us that the sidelong glance is the sweetest, the tangential approach the most telling. Joining him will be Lisa Lambe, who shared the stage with Glen Hansard and Martin Hayes for his ‘Muldoon’s Picnic’ during Summer 2019. She will perform songs from her new album Juniper.
Paul Muldoon is an Irish poet and professor of poetry, as well as an editor, critic, playwright, lyricist and translator. Muldoon served as Professor of Poetry at Oxford University from 1999 to 2004 and as poetry editor of The New Yorker from 2007 to 2017. He has taught at Princeton University since 1987 and currently occupies the Howard G.B. Clark ’21 chair in the Humanities. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He is the recipient of honorary doctorates from ten universities.
Acclaimed Irish singer and actress Lisa Lambe releases her solo forthcoming album Juniper on April 3rd 2020. Described by the Irish Times as the finest singer and actor of her generation, Lisa’s keen poetic musical sensibilities and the soulfulness of her voice see her now poised to attract a global audience with her forthcoming album written in Connemara. Her songwriting, although inspired by the Irish landscape and surroundings is also thoroughly universal, modern and international.
