"Shanties" International Sailing Song Festival - Krakow,
Poland - Feb 20-23, 2020
Krakow may look like an improbable place for a festival of
sailor songs yet the city hosts Poland's biggest such event
every February. It originated in 1981 and since 1996 has been
named the International Sea Song Festival Shanties or actually,
in Polish, the Miedzynarodowy Festiwal Piosenki Zeglarskiej
"Shanties," popularly called "Shanties in Krakow."
It has taken ten years, but Bounding Main returns to the 38th
assembly of this wonderful festival. This event is the
furthest from our home port of Chicago but it is so worth the
trip! There are so many talented and important "must
listen to" groups at this event! We made so many great friends
during our last foray to this beautiful city - with so many fun
and interesting stories that we've shared over the years!
