“The songs are a blend of silly fun and wholehearted love for America's wondrous musical heritage.” - Midwest Book Review

Alastair Moock is a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter from Boston. Since 1995, he has toured throughout the US and Europe and won top honors at many of the country's most prestigious songwriting contests, including those at the Falcon Ridge, Sisters, and Great Waters folk festivals. In 2007 he was nominated for a Boston Music Award for Outstanding Singer/Songwriter of the Year. The Boston Globe calls him "One of the town's best and most adventurous songwriters," and The Washington Post says, "Every song is a gem."

These Are My Friends follows Moock’s award-winning 2009 family music debut, A Cow Says Moock. That album won a 2010 NAPPA Gold Award, a Parents’ Choice “Recommended” Award and was a Boston Children’s Music Favorite Album of the Year.

Like Pete Seeger and others from an earlier generation of folk music, Moock makes little distinction between his own songs and cover material. For him, it’s all part of a continuum — a collaboration between the old and the new. Interspersed with the eight originals (and two short parodies) on These Are My Friends are songs like Mail Myself to You (by Woody Guthrie), Green Green Rocky Road (traditional, associated with Dave Van Ronk), Yes Indeed (by Sy Oliver, made famous by Ray Charles), Every Day (co-written and originally sung by Buddy Holly) and Ladybug’s Picnic (from Sesame Street).

“An ebullient debut children's album from respected folk musician Alastair Moock. Inspired by his toddler twin daughters, Moock offers dad-savvy empathy, humor and warmth delivered in his trademark gravel rasp and foot-stomping, American roots music instrumentals.” - Parents' Choice
