For close to 25 years, Boiled In Lead have been innovators in bringing "folk music" kicking and screaming to rock audiences (and rock music to screaming folk audiences!) Boiled In Lead's many instrumental dance tunes incorporate global influences, rhythms, and melodies that are guaranteed to keep the feet moving. Original songs stick in the mind long after the music is over.
The players improvise freely yet stay in sync, playing a vital mix of original and traditional material that sounds fresh and highly identifiable. The group and the individual musicians have won over 20 Minnesota Music Awards, and toured throughout the US and in Europe. The band's current lineup sees the return of original lead singer Todd Menton the addition of masterful guitarist Dean Magraw, and loads of new material to play.
Enthusiastic, powerful, technically brilliant, playing a wealth of instruments, electric and acoustic, Boiled In Lead routinely blows away preconceptions about independent ways to rock.
