SITKA — “You’re in good voice today!”
It may be one of the best compliments that chanteyman Don Sineti can give out after he invites audiences to join him for choruses of “Barett’s Privateers” or “Rolling Down to Old Maui” or even a couple of verses of “This Land is Your Land.”
Sineti performed a family concert at one of the final events in Sitka’s annual WhaleFest. The concert was a combination of traditional songs, sea chanteys, songs of the sea as well as folk songs.
“Songs that people can join in on, and that kids will like,” Sineti said.
