New website to showcase Sea Shanty bands, festivals and music! | News


MILWAUKEE, March 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — A new website is being developed for all Sea Shanty fans looking for festivals to attend and bands to listen to. It’s called the Maritime Music Directory International, and it’s developed by a couple of old salts who have been performing this kind of music for 40 years.

“We just launched our Kickstarter campaign!” noted Dean Calin, website project manager and founder of maritime music group, Bounding Main. “We have so many back-end elements put together for this website. We will be the only directory, anywhere, of international maritime music artists and festivals. When an event is looking to hire performers from ‘Sea Shanties”, he can search this directory for experienced bands and individual artists accepting bookings. Similarly, maritime-themed bands looking for performance opportunities can search this directory for venues that may be bookable. Music fans can find festivals in their area to attend, or they can see what music or videos their favorite bands have recorded and follow a link to order them online! seas!”

“I performed this music as a shantyman on HMS Bounty in the 80s,” said Milwaukee“The explosion of interest in maritime music has been so great for our circle of musician friends who specialize in this genre of music.”

Calin pointed out, “We get emails and calls from festivals that are desperate for musicians to perform sea shanties for their sea-themed events, but internet search engines don’t seem to provide the specific information that people are looking for. That’s why we’re launching a Kickstarter campaign to create this website.”

The Maritime Music Directory International will be a self-powered, central place for sea shanty fans to find out exactly what they want about bands, festivals, individual performers and their recorded music. Kickstarter campaign gives MMDI team 60 days – Thursday, May 19, 2022 9:29 p.m. CDT to raise the $6,000 it needs to create the website.

“We are reaching out to all slum music fans, festival organizers, tall ship crews, museums, music labels and maritime-themed merchants to support this Kickstarter campaign,” Drake explained. “This project will benefit so many people and offer so much insight into who’s who in the sea shanties music scene!”
