In Studio Interview: Alastair Moock - Web Site

Today's guest was Alastair Moock, an emerging force in the Massachusetts scene.  Alastair is an evocative songwriter with keen wit and clear vision.  He has an appreciation of the traditions he builds upon.  As he plays, you can feel the essence of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger carried on faithfully in a new generation.   In studio, and on disc, he is a powerful and engaging performer who draws in the listener with intelligent, reflective lyrics blended with potent vocals.  Alastair enjoys variety in music both as a listener and a writer and mixes in folk, blues, and jazz styles, and always lets the songs express his character, humor, and insights.
