HWPL: Alastair Moock Family Concert

Alastair Moock brings folk music for kids to the Hamilton Wenham Public Library

Bring the whole family for an evening with one of Boston's  premier folk artists. Families of all ages are welcome. No registration necessary, free and open to the public.

Nearly twenty years into his performing career, 2014 Grammy-nominated musician Alastair Moock has managed to carve out a unique niche for himself: He is a songwriter 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.
