There was a metric ton of quality family music booked by Bill Childs of Spare the Rock for the 2010 Meltdown Festival. Of all the acts scheduled, I can honestly say that I was excited most to see and hear Alastair Moock. His debut kid’s album “A Cow Says Moock” remains high on my list of 2010 all-ages releases and that voice, oh that voice. I wanted to hear it live and I did, in the intimate Lounge stage complete with Christmas lights and a disco ball. The converted hallway proved to be the perfect lil’ place to enjoy Moock’s gentle guitar and banjo work. Oh, and his voice…amazing.
I recorded him performing Woody Guthrie’s “Ship in the Sky”. Enjoy:
