Shaker Barn Music
Imagine: a Berkshire barn, overlooking the fields and forests of an authentic Shaker village, filled with the soulful sounds of great music. The crickets aren’t the only ones dancing. Come join the celebration.
Make an evening of it – Seeds is serving dinner (in the restaurant, on the terrace, or you can grab a picnic box and head to the barn). The barn bar opens an hour before the show and serves snacks, drinks, and locally crafted beer.
Saturday, October 6, Doors open 6:30pm/Show 7:30pm
Paul Muldoon with Rogue Oliphant
Our final barn concert of 2018 will be anything but ordinary, with Pulitzer Prize winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon – “the most significant English-language poet born since the second World War” (The Times Literary Supplement). Muldoon has a string of accolades – he’s won Queen Elizabeth’s Gold Medal for Poetry (and the T.S. Eliot Prize) and is poetry editor of The New Yorker. He’s also quite entertaining – Roger Rosenblatt in The New York Times described Muldoon as “one of the great poets of the past hundred years…playful, lyrical, hilarious, melancholy. And angry. Only Yeats before him could write with such measured fury.” Muldoon will be joined in the barn by Rogue Oliphant, a loose collective of musicians who translate Muldoon’s poetry into music. The band is as good as his pen and includes David Mansfield (Bob Dylan’s guitarist), Sim Cain (former drummer with the Rollins Band and J. Geils), mean bassist Matt Kohut (he’s played with the legendary Velvet drummer Maureen “Moe” Tucker), member of Ween and Band of Changes, Chris Harford, and Robbie ‘Sea Hag’ Mangano (who has played with Slash, Sean Lennon, and Laurie Anderson).
