Once stuck on a deserted island with a guitar and a book of chantey lyrics without chords, Al developed his own delightful melodies and style of chantey singing! Al was one of the infamous Halibutts, recognized for keeping Ivar Haglund’s folk song traditions alive. He is a winner of the Seattle Stories of the Sea competition and has received two Parent’s Choice Foundation awards for children’s audio. Al entertains internationally and around the Northwest, performing solo and with Doug Bright as the Marvelous Minstrel Boys.
