Bounding Main at The Harbour Festival Papenburg — Papenburg, Germany — Sept. 5-7, 2014

This young maritime festival is presented in conjunction with the State Garden Show, so it should be a lovely blend of maritime and horticultural beauty, hearkening back to the bustling nautical passage of flowers in the 17th century throughout Europe.  This event will be at the end of our week-long journey in The Netherlands and Germany.  We expect to be doing smaller gigs and traveling around and enjoying the sights in between festivals.

Well, like the papers say, "Maritime Papenburger Vereine und Groupen präsentieren sich!" Maybe they should be saying, "Warnung! hier kommt Bounding Main!" Ahoy, Mates!
