“A Tom Waits for kids”


“In the footsteps of Seeger and Guthrie, Alastair Moock makes real kids music that parents can actually enjoy.”

“The soundtrack for diverse kids in the 1970’s was Marlo Thomas & Friends’ ‘Free to Be… You and Me’. Forty years later there
is a new, contemporary soundtrack emerging… Alastair Moock uses masterful songwriting skills to talk about ‘All Kinds of You and Me,’ the title of his new CD… It is another soundtrack that could last us 40 years.”
– Cathy Fink, 2-Time Grammy Award Winning Family Musician


“Singer Alastair Moock’s live show is half Appalachian hootenanny, half honky-tonk jam session. It’s also totally kid-friendly…
[with] an indie sensibility hip parents dig.”


“A musical descendant of Woody Guthrie, Moock refreshes the classic brand of acoustic folk with a zany sense of humor.”


“‘Singing Our Way Through’ has a message of clear-eyed hope and comfort that isn’t just for kids… The songs provide a
combination of empathy and humor, offering strength to any families facing an uncertain future.”


“What’s most impressive about ‘Singing Our Way Through’ is its ability to portray cancer for what it is: a complex human
process full of fear and pain, but also moments of great intimacy and even joy. It’s an unsentimental album that happens
to be deeply moving… A masterpiece.”

Downloadable Biography

Alastair Moock is a 2013 GRAMMY Nominee, three-time Parents’ Choice Gold Medal Winner, and recipient of the ASCAP Joe Raposo Children’s Music Award. Long one of Boston’s premier folk artists, Alastair turned his attention to family music after the birth of his twins in 2006. The New York Times calls him “a Tom Waits for kids” and The Boston Globe declares that, “in the footsteps of Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie, Alastair Moock makes real kids music that parents can actually enjoy.” Moock and Friends’ live shows are rowdy, rootsy, singin’ and dancin’ fun for the whole family!


Downloadable Press Release: “Be a Pain: An Album for Young (and Old) Leaders”

Alastair Moock’s latest album, “Be a Pain: An Album for Young (and Old) Leaders”, is a joyful, musical rallying cry for young (and old) leaders in these turbulent times. It looks to the heroes of our past (Dr. King, Harvey Milk, Billie Jean King, Pete Seeger, Cesar Chavez, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X) and our present (Malala Yousafzai, the Parkland student protestors) to inspire our kids to move the ball forward. The album won a 2020 Parents’ Choice Gold Medal and Nora Guthrie (daughter of Woody Guthrie) said upon its release “How lucky we are to have Alastair Moock around these days! When too many adults are role modeling the pursuit of fame, fortune, or personal gain, Alastair’s songs encourage our kids to pursue goodness, kindness, awareness and courage. Adults might listen up!” Moock’s plan is to give away free copies of the album –– along with free programming on social justice history –– to underserved schools in the Boston region and beyond. So far, the Be a Pain Education Fund has raised over $13,000 towards that goal.
