Matthew Russel Cook
as the father
Matthew Cook has been singing all his life, but when the Irish genre took hold of him, the songs in his head were forever changed. The music touched a part of his heart and his soul that lay dormant, and he was instantly connected into the long history of Irish music. Now he plays and sings Irish Music in the DFW area as much as he possibly can. He plays with the band Slugger’s Rule (www.sluggersrule.com) and is a former member of String Theory (www.stringtheoryirish.com), he helps lead the Wednesday night Irish Music Session with the amazing Daniel Mehalko at The Celt Irish Pub, and is also a member of the TIMES Band & Session Players. The last time he was on stage was in Theater Three's "Once the Musical", but holds a degree in Theater from UNT.
as the mother
Erin Cook is not an actress, by trade, but she is a huge supporter of the arts. Her husband got involved in the local Irish music scene several years ago, and it has been a joy watching it grow around DFW. When a friend asked if Matthew and Erin would be involved in a music video, Matt was very surprised when she agreed! Erin generally wants to be nowhere near the spotlight, but this has been a fascinating experience all-around, and the end product is a beautiful collaboration. When not listening to music around town, Erin can usually be found either in her garden, spending time with family, or volunteering at Equest Therapeutic Horsemanship, a barn that specializes in teaching horseback riding to children and adults with disabilities.
