Boiled In Lead
Boiled In Lead
Since 1983, BiL have been innovators in bridging traditional music from many culltures with the sound and attitude of a rock band. A Boiled In Lead concert is a combination of darkly-tinged folk ballads and originals alongside instrumental dance music from Ireland and elsewhere. The group and the individual musicians have won many Minnesota Music Awards, and toured throughout the US and in Europe.

For 2016, core members Todd Menton, David Stenshoel and Drew Miller move forward as a quartet, adding drummer and multi-ethnic percussionist Michael Bissonette to the lineup. Michael has a wide musical vocabulary, and is heard around the Twin Cities with artists such as Katie McMahon, Laura MacKenzie, and Robert Everest.

Enthusiastic, powerful, technically brilliant, playing a wealth of instruments with extreme dynamics, Boiled In Lead routinely demolishes genres with its highly-identifiable sound. An Onion A&E quote describes the band’s approach well: “...the prime purveyor of a style of Celtic music infused with punk-rock attitude, developing over the years with a hard-driving swirl that combined Irish folk with heavy rock and elements of styles from all over the world. ...one of the best bands Minnesota’s ever produced. ...even without amplification, Boiled In Lead can summon up furious punk-folk energy."
