Album Notes
Bounding Main is a vocal group that sings richly harmonic versions of traditional maritime songs in historic costumes. Each of their members is a music and theater veteran with as many as thirty years of experience. Their second CD, “Lost at Sea,” has been well received with brisk domestic and international sales. They have previously performed at indoor and outdoor festivals dedicated to general music, maritime music and tall ships, museums, renaissance faires, folk music venues, corporate events, house concerts and private gatherings.


Here are the liner notes from "Going Overboard:"

South Australia
A song about a girl, Nancy Blair, who should pay more attention to the company she keeps.

To Ireland
(Original: © Maggie Hannington)
A song about Canada, we mean Ireland. A beautiful song about wanting to be back at home and then wanting to be back at sea. The sea is always bluer…

Leaving of Liverpool
A love song about a girl and her one true love. Any by that of course we mean a girl and every guy she sees. Or at least that’s the way we do it.
Soloist: Christie Dalby

Johnny Come to Hilo
I don’t care who Johnny is, he needs to keep his mitts off that girl in the blue dress. (Christie gets combat pay for this song.)

Old Dun Cow
A song that combines two traditions, drinking and arson. Recorded LIVE!
Soloist: David Yondorf

Blow Liza Blow
A song from the Bahamas where the sponge fisherman battle the storms every spring and summer, which results in losing yet another jolly boy. We have a surplus of jolly boys ourselves and will be donating one soon.
Soloist: Gina Dalby

Bristol Girls
Harlots, the lot of them.
Soloist: Dean Calin

Toss and Roll
(Original: © David Yondorf)
We know, you’re thinking right now that you are amazed that David can even read let alone write! This song is proof he can do both (but not at the same time).

Ocean Liner
(Barry Skipsey, recorded with his permission)
A song written by an Australian, performed by a Dutch group in Chicago and appropriated (and by that we mean "stolen" but with permission from the composer) by Bounding Main in the good ol’ U.S.of A. This song gets around.

Blow Boys Blow
It does. We know. Recorded LIVE!
Soloist: Jon Krivitzky

Fire Marengo
Fire? Where? Where’s the fire? Oh, in Marengo. That’s fine then.
Soloist: Maggie Hannington

Pass the Mug
(Original: © Christie Dalby & Gina Dalby)
It’s a drinkin’ song! No really, it is...we kid you not. So grab your mug, cup, goblet or sippy-cup and play along, that’s an order! (The only group where you’ll find a drinking song written by two teatotalers.)

Golden Vanity
A song about a sink at Menards. No, actually it is a song about a ship called the Golden Vanity. Kind of a sad song (if you must know) but we silly it up where we can.
Soloist: David Yondorf

Fareweel Tae Tarwathie
(Traditional, but arranged within an inch of its life by Jon Krivitzky)
Defies explanation.

We lovingly dedicate this song to the memory of our good friend Dave Zielinski. Fair winds and following seas, friend.

Going Overboard
My favorite song off of this CD is Blow, Boys, Blow. This is a fantastic CD.

Glenn E. Moss

Going Overboard
Is this CD fun? Just look at the cover! If you like folk music, songs about the sea, humor, and GOOD A Capella music, then this CD is for you. Bounding Main is a group of people who truely believe that if it isn't fun, then it isn't worth doing. Unless, of course, there are cookies involved in it for Maggie...

And check out their other two CDs also! You can't loose, especially since they provide these nifty samples of their music on CD Baby.


Singing on the Seas
Rich voices, beautiful melodies and a touch of humor make this album a favorite. The first time I listened to it, I was driving in a snowstorm. It was the perfect accompaniment for my snowy adventure.


Going Overboard
Bounding Main just keeps getting better and better. From the hauntingly beautiful harmonies of Fareweel tae Tarwathie to the sexy sound of Blow Liza Blow to the sheer fun of songs like pass the mug. Oh, and I can't forget To Ireland, Ocean liner etc. There is something for everyone on this CD and a new favorite every time I listen. This is a fun listen from start to finish and you'll be singing along. Oh, and if you get the chance, go see them in person. An experience not to be forgotten in pure fun and entertainment.

Going Overboard
Absolutely fantastic! To Ireland, Leaving Liverpool, Old Dun Cow, Pass the Mug, and Fareweel Tae Tarwathie are new favorites, though Northwest Passage from Lost At Sea still ranks as my #1 favorite. I found myself grinning through Old Dun Cow, Toss & Roll, Pass the Mug. Job well done!


Going Overboard
I learned about Bounding Main when I read rave reviews of Going Overboard on a site called Celtophilia.com. They had a link to CD Baby and I ordered it the same day. Delivery was swift and the listening pleasure immense. My 9 and 13 year- old daughters love it as much as I do. You should see them dancing around the house! We are ordering Lost at Sea next.
