Alastair Moock is a Parents' Choice Gold Award Winner, three-time NAPPA Gold Award Winner, and now a 2014 Grammy Nominee for Best Children?s Album. Long one of Boston?s premier folk artists, Alastair turned his attention to family music after the birth of his twin daughters in 2006. The Boston Globe calls him "a Tom Waits for your tots" and Time Out New York calls him "a musical descendant of Woody Guthrie who refreshes the classic brand of acoustic folk with a zany sense of humor." Alastair Moock and Friends? live shows are rowdy, rootsy, singin? and dancin? fun for the whole family!
Along with Alastair Moock?s gritty and soulful voice, the Chorale with 60 intergenerational voices under the direction of Chris Eastburn, will sing songs written or adapted by Alastair for his Grammy nominated album along with several from his critically acclaimed earlier albums.
Director Chris Eastburn is an award winning composer, arranger, and choral director who enjoys making music with people of all ages and walks of life. The Chorale is fortunate to be backed regularly by the instrumental talents of Gary Backstrom, guitarist and lead vocalist of the Gary Backstrom Band, multi-instrumentalist Dan Dick of Outrageous Fortune, bassist Matt Lauer and drummer Steve Prouty. This concert is appropriate for all ages.
