This poet’s picnic offers a feast of words and music

You’ll find a feast of music, storytelling and poetry at "Muldoon's Picnic," a monthly show held at the Irish Arts Center in New York. The event, which mixes vaudeville variety show with poetry as an ancient oral art form, is the brainchild of Irish-born, Pulitzer-winning writer Paul Muldoon. Jeffrey Brown reports.
