"Alastair is one of the hottest new folk performers on the Boston scene, a very modern songwriter with a wonderfully rootsy American folk sound. I'm convinced that if Woody Guthrie were alive today, he'd just love Alastair's wry wit, gravel'n'honey voice and nervy willingness to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth whenever he sings." - Scott Alarik, Author, Deep Community
Alastair Moock is an incredible performer. Alastair, like his boyhood hero, Woody Guthrie, believes in the power of music to reach all people - young and old, far and wide, for all occasions. In his 20 years of performing, Alastair Moock has managed to carve out a unique niche for himself. He writes songs 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. Alastair has played his music all over this country and across the pond with appearances in Scandinavia, Germany, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, and the UK. He has won numerous awards for his songwriting. His newest Cd: Singing Our Way Through: Songs for the World's Bravest Kids, has been nominated this year for a Grammy award.
"Alastair Moock has been compared to John Prine, Steve Forbert, Tom Waits and other rough voices in American roots music. The comparisons miss the fact that his folksy songs about wandering friends, lost loves, and travel have the freshness of a newly opened window." - Acoustic Guitar
