I had a peculiar feeling listening to Alastair Moock's music for the first time. I felt like I was listening to a modern-day Woody Guthrie. Moock is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter from Boston. He's recorded several albums of adult folk music, but he's also ventured into family music and has had success in both genres. He says the move into writing children's songs was very natural — after all, Woody did it. So did Pete Seeger, Leadbelly and Mississippi John Hurt.

Moock plays for any and all audiences and says in his bio: "…music is music, people are people. I just wanna tell stories."

Alastair Moock was in Minnesota for shows at the Walker Art Center and at the Mall of America recently, and he stopped by the Radio Heartland studio for a chat and to play some tunes — including a Radio Heartland first, an a cappella number Moock describes as "medical hip hop."
