Alastair Moock Shares ‘Songs For The World’s Bravest Kids’
Back in the 1990s, Alastair Moock established himself in Boston’s folk scene, but for a while now he’s been dedicating himself to “family music” — music that reaches kids but doesn’t talk down to them. For Moock and his wife, Jane, this music is very personal. They have 6-year-old twin daughters, Clio and Elsa. One year ago, Clio was diagnosed with leukemia.
To help Clio, Moock picked up his guitar and started singing to her, and with her — about the cancer, about losing her hair, and about being brave. This effort became his latest album, “Singing Our Way Through: Songs for the World’s Bravest Kids.”
Earlier this month, his album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Children’s Album.
