Bounding Main at Hafenfest Papenburg — Papenburg, Germany — Sept. 2-4, 2014

This young maritime festival was quite fun and interesting when we entertained there in its first year.  It was a lovely blend of maritime and European culture.  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!
