Bounding Main is a maritime-themed vocal group that sings richly harmonic versions of traditional songs. Their shows are filled with spirit, humor and harmony; their arrangements of traditional and contemporary nautical music bring the listener into the world of pirates, adventure and romance.
Each member of Bounding Main — Dean Calin, Christie Dalby, Gina Dalby, Jon Krivitzky, and David Yondorf — is a music and theater veteran, with diverse entertainment backgrounds. Their performances and CDs have been well received with brisk US and international sales. They have performed at music festivals, nautical festivals, major tall ships events, maritime museums, Renaissance faires, folk music venues and corporate events on both sides of the Atlantic.
Bounding Main at the Bristol Renaissance Faire
July 25-26, 2020 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Bounding Main returns to our home port at the Bristol Renaissance Faire, multiple-year winner of the Best Renaissance Festival in the 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 two weekends this year!
Trivia: There is a tall ship on the grounds of Bristol – what is its name?
“Though my sails be torn and tattered, and the mast be turned about, let the night wind chill me to my very soul,
Though the spray might sting my eyes, and the stars no light provide, give me just another morning light to hold…”
