    • Race and Song: A Musical Conversation with Reggie Harris & Alastair Moock

      We invite children and their grownups to join us from home for a concert followed by a live Q&A presented on Zoom. What happens when two friends get together? Usually they talk about their lives, they get caught up on the news, maybe listen to each other’s points of view, and share what’s on their minds. And, if they’re musicians, they’re likely to pull out an instrument or two along the way… In Race and Song: A Musical Conversation, Alastair Moock and Reggie Harris do just that. Only, in this case, these friends of different races, ages, and social backgrounds share how they’ve seen and experienced the world in different ways. They explore issues of race, class, gender and history with an intentionality and generosity of spirit that will draw in kids and adults alike. These aren’t always comfortable topics for discussion, but the discussion –– and the discomfort –– are keys to moving forward. Together in musical conversation, and with the aid of historical and family photos, Alastair and Reggie open up to each other and frame their perspectives through music (which always helps the medicine go down!). Join these two veteran musicians and storytelling troubadours for a very special performance ––an exploration of the past, the present and the possible. Reggie Harris has traveled the world for over 40 years as a songwriter, storyteller and lecturer using music and the spoken word to make an impact in education, social and racial justice, the environment, faith and in human and civil rights. He is a teaching artist in the John F. Kennedy Center’s CETA program, a Woodrow Wilson Scholar and the Director of Music Education for the UU Living Legacy Project, leading civil rights pilgrimages throughout the South. Learn more at ReggieHarrisMusic.com. Alastair Moock began performing professionally 15 years after Reggie. He made a name for himself on the folk and Americana circuit before turning his attention to family and educational music after the birth of his twins in 2006. He has since garnered a 2013 Grammy nomination and three Parents’ Choice Gold Medals for his children’s albums, and has become a regular performer of assemblies and residencies for students on subjects ranging from social justice to language arts.

Funding for this series has generously been provided by the Cambridge Public Library Foundation.
