Shanty Singers and Balladeers! Bounding Main's crew is a group of veteran environmental theater performers with the love of music and performance in their blood, performing sea shanties and songs of the sea. All of the members are theatrically and musically trained, which makes their shows so much fun! Preserving the Elizabethan Sea Dog look in their costumes and gear, they sing sea shanties and ballads from 400 years ago through today. While this might, on the surface, sound academic, the Bounding Main shows are filled with spirit, humor and excellent vocal music. They have endeavored to make their arrangements agreeable to the modern ear and attention span. Sea shanties were written by sailors in the days of tall ships as rhythmic devices to ensure that gangs of men working together to pull ropes, pump bilges or raise the anchor all kept in step with one another. The songs are all rich in harmony and dynamically bring the listener into the world of pirates, adventure and romance.

Bounding Main's home port lies in the Western Great Lakes region (Chicago and Milwaukee), and they regularly perform for nautical events, cultural festivals, at museums, aboard tall ships and at select clubs. They're also recording their second CD to be released the summer of 2005! Give them a listen, and you, too, will become a Bounding Mainiac -as their fan followers are known. See for more information.
