Wolf Trap’s Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods is offering one lucky reader a family four-pack to attend this week’s Alastair Moock Show on Thursday July 25th, 2013. If your family is free this week and looking for something amazing to do, consider going to Wolf Trap with your kids to experience Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods. I know it’s a schlep for those of us on the Maryland side, but Wolf Trap is a perfect way to introduce/expose children to theatrical performances. The kid-targeted performances begin at 10:30am, Tuesdays through Saturdays. Shows are approximately 45 – 60 minutes and are recommended for children ages 4 and up.
Here’s more about singer-songwriter Alastair Moock, who’s performing this week

  • With the birth of his twin daughters in 2006, this gifted Boston folk star was inspired to try his hand at family music. Today, Moock and his Rowdy Roots band delight young audiences nationwide with silly and inspiring songs.
  • Moock’s achievements in children’s music include the Boston Children’s Music Favorite Album of the Year, the Parents’ Choice Awards Silver Honor, and the National Parents Publishing Awards (NAPPA) Gold Honor for his first two albums. At this summer’s show, Moock will present the world premiere of his upcoming 2013 CD.
  • After one of Moock’s daughters was diagnosed with leukemia in 2012, he began creating an album that focuses on appreciating the little things, coping with hardship, and embracing the struggle. He is currently fundraising for the record (tentatively titled Singing Our Way Through: Songs for the World’s Bravest Kids), which he plans to give as a free resource to pediatric oncologists.
  • “Moock refreshes the classic brand of acoustic folk with a zany sense of humor as seen on songs about a mixed-up alphabet (‘CBAs’), being a curious toddler (‘Three Like Me’) and harvesting your own veggie garden (‘Didn’t Know What I Was Missing).”—The Boston Herald
