One of the longest-running bands in the Twin Cities, Boiled in Lead return to Celtic Junction for a semi-acoustic evening marking the halfway point to March 17th.

BiL play as a semi-acoustic 4-piece with core members Todd Menton (vocals, guitar, bodhrán, whistle), Drew Miller (bass), and David Stenshoel (fiddle) joined by Michael Bissonnette (percussion). With their music ever-evolving, BiL draw from their extensive catalog, and will add a few new twists and turns to the night, including a tribute to the late Dave Swarbrick (without whom…) 

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.”
