Muldoon’s Picnic are a five-part harmony singing group based in the lovely green city of Glasgow. We sing in a range of styles from the sublime to the ridiculous focussing on our own arangements of traditional song from around the world, in languages including French, Italian, Welsh, Bulgarian, Croatian, Georgian, Hebrew, Luganda and Sotho. We also have an interest in the American shapenote or Sacred Harp tradition.

"Spine-tingling harmonies . . . stunned us with their singing and sense of fun"
"If you haven’t come across this wonderful group before, prepare to be amazed"
"Can anyone better Muldoons?"
Reviews of Gingham Down:
“A fascinating . . . whistle-stop Cook’s Tour of acappella musics. Tonally, each member of the group is commendably secure and individual are lines firmly and confidently managed with a keen sense of each one’s place within the overall scheme of things . . . there’s a sure-footed and healthily alfresco feel to this idiosyncratic musical picnic that’s very winning” (David Kidman, NetRhythms.com)
“Anyone who has seen their live stage act will know that their presentation is lively and fun loving as well as highly professional and this atmosphere comes across well on this recording.” (Derek Gifford, Folk Northwest magazine)
