Todd Menton CD Release with Lehto and Wright, Kevin Kling and Savage Aural Hotbed
Join Todd Menton, Boiled in Lead’s manic lead singer and critically acclaimed New Folk Records recording artist, as we celebrate the release of his new CD, The Dolmen Field. Like his previous release, Where Will You Land, “Dolmen” covers a broad range of folk-rock and original styles, and Todd promises to bring them all to bear at the show: blasting industrial hornpipes backed by his friends and Cedar favorites Savage Aural Hotbed, didgeridoo from none other than NPR commentator Kevin Kllng, shimmering original ballads on solo guitar and voice, and straight-up pub rock with New Folk stalwarts Lehto and Wright featuring Matt Jacobs. All held together by Todd’s deranged energy and off-the-wall humor. Come join Todd and his crazed, chaotic, eclectic circle of like-minded musical compatriots as they release Todd’s strange, rocking, tuneful new disc. Lehto and Wright will open the show.
