Main returns to our home port at the Bristol Renaissance Faire,

Renaissance Festival Podcast Awards!
Located just off of
Highway 94 at the Illinois-Wisconsin border, this venue is one of
the oldest and most popular events of its kind. We will bring our
inimitable renditions of maritime music to those 40 acres of
historical costumes, entertainment, musicians, food and shops on
Saturday and Sunday for three fun-filled weekends this year!

Trivia! One of the largest and oldest maritime music festivals
in Europe is hosted in land-locked Krakow, Poland. Ask us why when

Main always takes great delight when we're able to perform at an
institute of education! In this case we will be bringing our
maritime songs to the Downers Grove Public Library.
library was founded in 1891 when sailing ships were giving way to
steam-powered vessels. Sea shanties, as active work tools,
were fading, but fascination by the common people for sailors and
pirates and their worlds was being dramatized in music and theater.
Maritime music is still very much alive today as tall ships still
sail the world round.
