UPCOMING EVENTS

 

Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival - June 16-18, 2017

We are honored and honestly a bit gobsmacked to share the news that we have been invited to perform at the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival! This will be our first appearance in England and we are beyond excited to start making plans to share our special brand of shanties with the folks in the cracking coastal community of Falmouth. We'll keep you posted on the event as things unfold. After fourteen years, we've learned that you just never know when, or where, a Bounding Mainiac will surprise us with an appearance of their own!

Cheerio!

The festival runs from June 23rd through June 25th, 2017, so if you are in the area (and we know some of you are), make sure you come by, share a song or two, catch up with friends old and new, and support this incredible maritime festival. 

Planning on joining in on the fun? Make sure your itinerary includes events such as the Folk Cafe on Friday, a full festival day on Saturday followed by a gala in the evening, and then another full day of folk and shanty tunes on Sunday. Music and merriment will occur throughout Giethoorn with performances in restaurants, museums and local businesses. What better way to get to know one another than by joining together in spirit and song all over town.

Trivia:  did you know that each of the members of Bounding Main, before the group was founded,  entertained separately in some capacity at the Bristol Renaissance Faire?  Christie and Gina worked with the falconers for eight seasons.  Jon was with several madrigal ensembles.  David was in the ensemble fight cast for three seasons.  Dean was with various ensemble fight casts from as far back as 1976!
