+ About the Performance
This program was recorded 01/05/2013 at Symphony Space.

Like Pete Seeger and others from an earlier generation of folk music, Alastair Moock makes little distinction between his own songs and cover material; it's all part of a continuum - a collaboration between the old and the new that he loves to share with kids of all ages. Joined by his rowdy roots band, an Alastair Moock performance captures the spirit and sound of timeless music from yesterday and today.


"Moock's wonderful knack for filling catchy ditties with humorous lyrics will bring a smile to your face" -National Parenting Publications Award

"These real-life family songs are as sweetly satisfying as a mouthful of caramel, sung in an affable leap-froggy baritone..." -Boston Globe

+ About the Artists

Fifteen years into his career on the international folk circuit, Alastair Moock has managed to carve out a unique niche for himself: He is an artist committed to celebrating the roots of American music while knocking down the walls between different audiences, genres and musical traditions. Today, his audiences range from adults all the way down to preschoolers, and he plays everything from nightclubs to theaters to schoolrooms. Like his boyhood hero, Woody Guthrie, Moock believes in the power of music to reach all people — young and old, far and wide, for all occasions.
