Bounding Main at The Downers Grove Public Library  - Sunday September 16, 2018

Bounding Main at the Downers Grove Public LibraryThe crew of Bounding 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.

This 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.

For all of the information that you need to know about the Downers Grove Public Library, please visit their web site at https://www.dglibrary.org/.
