  • Bounding Main Sings Ship Hit the Sand

    5:25

    So, back in 2014 during the Bie Daip International Folk and Shanty Festival in a sweet little city called Appingedam in the Netherlands, we musicians - dozens of us - are gathered in De Kameleon, a sponsor bar on the Kerkplein (church square). It is traditional that the groups perform songs, largely for each other, round-robin fashion during the evenings of the festival after the official shows are over. As we are merrily singing away, the door bangs open and the Norgies come stomping in: it is Fish & Ships Company, with Per Ludwig, on guitar, leading this song. They happened to have seen a rerun of the The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, with his guest Little Jimmy Dickens. Dickens performed this song written by Larry Kingston. So ... we bring you Ship Hit the Sand from 50 years ago from the USA, to Norway to the Netherlands and back to you again.

  • Bounding Main sings Man o War - Covid Safe Version

    2:55

    Bounding Main sings Man o' War - but in a safe way, to fight the COVID19 virus!

    Man o' War is a traditional maritime-themed song, originally collected from fishermen on St. Vincent’s Island (Island in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines).

    Jack Stanesco collected 'Sam Gone Away' from fishermen on St. Vincent’s Island when he was there in the Peace Corps. He brought it back with him and recorded it on our The New Golden Ring, Five Days Singing; Volume 2 (Folk-Legacy CD-42). — Sandy Paton of The New Golden Ring. The discussion in Mudcat Café refers to this song as a “shanty” but there is no evidence offered that it was used in any of the typical applications of a work song. Here are the lyrics that we're using:

    Bounding Main picked up this song from hearing it on the excellent collection, Circle, performed by Rillian and the Doxie Chicks.

    We recorded this song originally on our Fish Out of Water CD,

    You can download Fish Out of Water from Bandcamp: If you want to buy a physical CD connect with us on Facebook ( and we'll work out how to send you a copy.

  • Bounding Main and The Jolly Rogers sing Uncloudy Day

    2:46

    On June 30th 2012 Bounding Main flew down to Kansas City, Missouri to perform at the City Stage Theater at Union Station with The Jolly Rogers. The Bounding Main crew considered this to be quite an honor to sing along with such an established group of a capella performers in their home turf. Both of the five-member groups had been performing at various environmental theater venues for a number of years so it was a delight to join ten voices together at this show. Uncloudy Day was a signature piece for the Jolly Rogers so the Chicago-based group was delighted to assemble additional sounds to the piece. Most notably was Gina Dalby partnering with Chris Berger in the lead voices in Josiah K. Alwood's 1885 gospel piece.

    It is worth noting that Jon Krivitzky, Bounding Main's music director, was very enthusiastic about this song, arranging his group's five voices to seamlessly blend in with The Jolly Roger's five voices. His enthusiasm was evident when Cliff Lawson took note of his taking focus once the groups blended together, and then the Dalby twins noticed Cliff noticing Jon. Christie decided that she wanted to watch The Jon Show and sat down in the audience for a second! Such improvisational humor is a hallmark of both of these groups's work!
