Alastair Moock began performing professionally 15 years after Reggie. He made a name for himself on the folk and Americana circuit before turning his attention to family and educational music after the birth of his twins in 2006. He has since garnered a 2013 Grammy nomination and three Parents’ Choice Gold Medals for his children’s albums, and has become a regular performer of assemblies and residencies for students on subjects ranging from social justice to language arts.
