HOPEWELL – The landmark 180-seat Hopewell Theater re-opened in September 2017 after an extensive renovation. The theater owners’ goal was to transform the site into the region’s most intimate dine-in arts venue, with selectively eclectic live music, films, talks, and gourmet pop-up supper clubs.
To mark its one-year anniversary, Hopewell Theater will host a concert featuring Irish Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon and Rogue Oliphant, at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8.
Their presentation of songs and spoken-word pieces will be supported by musicians from several indie bands well-know in their own right: Cait O’Riordan (The Pogues), Warren Zanes (The Del Fuegos), Sim Cain (Rollins Band), David Mansfield (Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Review, The Alpha Band), and Chris Harford (The Band of Changes).
“It’s a band that has no absolutely fixed line-up,” Muldoon said. “It really doesn’t have a single sound because there are so many people involved and there’s a very wide range of music — there’s everything from country music to progressive rock — a whole range of styles and variety.”
